Art Auction For the Cure at Matthews Arts
Matthews Arts hosted their 3rd annual Art Auction for the Cure on October 2nd. Friends and supporters gathered at the art gallery during Breast Cancer Awareness Month to raise money to benefit research for the cure for breast cancer. More than sixty pieces, donated by local artists, were individually presented by gallery owner, Susan Matthews. Auctioneer Barbara Averell, Susan's sister, provided the description of each piece and led the back and forth, highly competitive contest, pounding her gavel and raising more than $2,600, exceeding last year's total.
The Art Auction was an enjoyable evening of wonderful art, good food, and genuine fun. All of the proceeds were presented to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Pittsburgh Affiliate.
Events and activities initiated, collaborated, promoted, and often orchestrated by EnjoyBellevue.org for the sole purpose of enriching the lives and times of all persons in the near and far proximity of Bellevue who will gather together to LIVE-WORSHIP-SHOP and enjoy the small town ambience which Bellevue exudes to all who venture forth.
