Art with a Heart to hold “Home is Where The Heart is” fundraiser

Art with a Heart, Inc. will present “Home is Where the HeART”– a creative casual fundraising event, Saturday, October 11, from 7 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., at the Castle at Keswick located at 3355 Keswick Road in Hampden.

Over 300 guests are expected for the celebration, which will feature Fall-themed food stations and cocktails from Zeffert & Gold Catering.

Adding to the fun will be a silent auction and Chinese Raffle with such items as a week’s stay in Sedona, Arizona, a lunch with Congressman Elijah Cummings, four Disney Park Hopper passes, and various dining, entertainment, travel and sports packages.

Also up for bid will be one-of-a-kind ducks (including Duck Showalter, Jackson Pollduck and Duck of the Irish) decorated in various artistic mediums by local artists and Art with a Heart teachers and volunteers.

Additionally, guests can participate in the creation of a community art project and shop for unique artwork, jewelry, house ware items, garden ornaments and assorted gifts handmade by Art with a Heart students and volunteers. All proceeds from the event will subsidize Art with a Heart’s direct programming costs.

“Art with a Heart turned 14 years old this past March and is delighted to be a creative, consistent and positive presence in the Baltimore community,” says Founder/Executive Director Randi Alper Pupkin. “Home is Where the HeArt is helps us to continue to provide educational, creative and inspirational programs for the City’s vulnerable children, youth and adults.”
