Written by Kristen Minichello

On November 10, 2023, the Blue Heron Brewery and Event Center served as the perfect backdrop for The Children’s Center’s Art With A Heart event, bringing together a community united in support of children and families.

Our heartfelt gratitude goes out to all who made the 9th Annual Art With A Heart for Children Auction & Benefit a resounding success. To the generous attendees, dedicated Fundraising Committee, supportive Sponsors, and hardworking volunteers, your contributions created a festive evening filled with compassion and generosity!
