Compassion Through Cameras (CTC) and FAR Conservatory of Therapeutic and Performing Arts (FAR) will jointly host heArt, a collaborative art show and fundraising event on Friday, Sept. 13 at the Goldner Walsh Nursery in Pontiac.
HeArt will take place from 6 to 10 p.m. The cost to attend is $50 per person. The price includes light snacks, cocktails and free parking.
"We're thrilled to partner with the FAR Conservatory for this first-time event," said Kelly Donaldson, founder and executive director of CTC. "It's a great opportunity for the students to display artwork they've created and to raise awareness of both organizations."
The artwork displayed in the show will be from FAR clients and CTC photography workshop participants. The event will also include a silent auction with art work by local artists. Proceeds from the event will support both organizations, which provide valuable educational and creativity development services to children and adults in need.
"Our goal is to raise the necessary funds to continue serving our clients and work toward our mission of providing therapeutic opportunities for children and adults with special needs," said Pamela Ayres, executive director of FAR.
