‘Heroes’ event to benefit CNY Arts Center and Red Cross

CNY Arts Center will be collaborating with the local Red Cross to present “Heroes of the American Red Cross: Arts in Motion.”

Artists are being sought for a live art and silent auction benefit April 28 at Thunder Island Oasis from 6 to 9 p.m. “Heroes” for the American Red Cross will be recognized while artists create a piece of art portraying the “Hero” theme during the evening’s event. Artists will have approximately one hour to complete their art, which will then be auctioned to benefit the Red Cross and CNY Arts Center.

Artists are also asked to donate a single piece of art from their collection to benefit the work.

Pathfinder Bank will sponsor the live art benefit presented by CNY Arts Center as part of the Red Cross Heroes Fundraising Campaign.

The evening will wrap the campaign period and recognize Hero participants for their fund-raising efforts. Tickets will be available at the door.

“We are grateful for the sponsorship of Pathfinder Bank and proud to support the vital role of the Red Cross in our communities”, said Nancy Fox, president of CNY Arts Center.  “We’re eager to pair this with an opportunity to showcase the fine artists who live and work in those communities and excited to see the ‘Hero’ theme come to life in a variety of art mediums. We anticipate a great evening for everyone.”

Artist space is limited but all arts are encouraged to participate. Those seeking information may visit ww.CNYArtsCenter.com or call Fox at 598-8812.
