Each year for the past 10 years Art Works Gallery artists have donated their beautiful pieces of art to raise money for The Food Bank of Nevada County. For each $1 donated to the Food Bank in the gallery, donors receive a ticket to enter the drawing for the art of their choice. In past years the drawings would take place at the annual Holiday Party amidst a gallery filled with excited donors hoping to go home with the art of their choice.
The community came together BIG TIME this year, not for a great party, great food or great drink, but to give through their donations to those for whom a Happy Holiday may simply mean food on the table. In this year of safe distancing, gallery patrons donated more than ever before. Art Works will write a check to the Food Bank of Nevada County in the amount of $1700. Winning tickets were quietly drawn before opening on December 12, and the happy phone calls began. People were thrilled, so very happy – many have come in to get their prizes already.
