Holiday Charity Raffle Gives Back to Local Community
Throughout the year, Art of Oconee is revered in the town of Lake Oconee, GA for providing high quality and impressive artwork from professional, local area artists. Because the town has been so supportive of the original art gallery over the years, Art of Oconee held its second annual holiday raffle on December 5th, and donated all proceeds to charity.
Relishing the opportunity to give back to a community who has helped support them so much, Art of Oconee partnered with the St. Vincent dePaul Society to help raise money for their local area mission work.
The St. Vincent’s local chapter in Lake Oconee is very active in the community, and relies on generous donations to their charity in order to help keep serving those in need.
This Art of Oconee holiday raffle was a simple and fun way to support their important work.
Spirit of the Season
According to a recent article, gallery marking director Cathy McIntire spoke about the reasons for hosting the holiday raffle. She said, “The gallery likes the idea of being involved with the community. We are able to help out a special group, plus everyone becomes aware of the art gallery and St. Vincent DePaul.”
Art of Oconee wouldn’t have been able to host this holiday raffle without help from the generous artists who donated their art as prizes for the lucky raffle winners.
To put an interesting spin on the prize, not one, but fifteen pieces of artwork were put aside in the gallery for the winner of the raffle to choose from.
The winner was able to choose between beautiful pottery, intricate jewelry, and unique paintings.
