Book Fairy Trollfling "Julia"-Troy Art Auction and Benefit
There is a very special Trollfling girl who has a very special date this Saturday. Julia will be taking part in a Silent Art Auction to benefit Sue Cantrell of Around About Books in Troy,Ohio. I was there myself earlier today to see the other artist's contributions, and wow there are so many wonderful TALENTED artists here in Troy,Ohio. The Troy Arts Council is a wonderful organization I am proud to be a part of.
Julia is now on display at Around About Books in Troy Ohio on Main Street, and hopefully she will be able to help out as much as she possibly can. She has a bright smile of caring on her face....I created her with a book theme in mind, almost as if she is dreaming of which tale to read next. Her wings are also made of recycled paper with bits of vintage newspaper and books.
The following is all the details of the event.
A Fundraising Benefit for Sue Cantrell
It’s Time to Give Back! A Fundraising Benefit for Downtown Troy Business Owner Sue Cantrell
Troy, Ohio – February 27, 2008 - In December of 2007, Sue Cantrell, co-owner of Around About Books located in Downtown Troy, had a portion of her leg amputated due to numerous blood clots. Friends within the community and the members of Espresso Book Club have organized a fundraiser to help offset her various medical costs.
The community is invited to come and listen to a variety of local writers as they take the stage to share their shorts stories, memoirs, and poetry. Place a bid in the silent art auction featuring items created from local artists; or purchase a raffle ticket for the chance to win one of several gift baskets filled with books signed and donated by published authors, and items donated by Downtown Troy businesses. Refreshments and desserts will be available for purchase during the event. Admission is $10.
Please join us on March 15th from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm in the Market Square Community Room located at 405 SW Public Square, 3rd Floor in Downtown Troy. It is a pleasure for the Espresso Book Club to organize this fundraising benefit in an effort to give back to our friend Sue Cantrell, as she has given so much to each of us and to the community.
In addition, there will be a bake sale located on the 1st floor in the common area behind Around About Books. Don’t forget to pick up a little something extra to take home and enjoy.
So if you are in the Central Ohio area don't miss out! Help out a super great cause.
