"Nothing is better than art designed from the heart." That’s the thought behind the Bethlehem Center’s fundraising event, Art from the Heart 2.0, at the BMW Showroom, 6806 E. Brainerd Road on Aug. 16 from 6-8:30 p.m.
Art from the Heart 2.0 is a fundraising auction that will feature local art and include a silent auction for family passes to local attractions, gift cards to favorite local businesses and more.
“Art from the Heart 2.0 was an event hosted by the Bethlehem Center many years ago,” said Laura Grody, board president of the Bethlehem Center. “Because of renewed interest, we are pleased to bring it back again.”
"Proceeds from the event will benefit students in the Read to Lead Academy, an afterschool and summer program that helps rising first through rising eighth graders grow academically, socially and spiritually during out-of-school hours in Chattanooga," officials said.
Debbie Boggs, development director for the Bethlehem Center said, “There is no greater joy than knowing you have made a difference in the life of a child. That is what you will be a part of by attending this great event.”
Heavy hors d'oeuvres and drinks will be provided. Tickets are $50 per person at www.thebeth.org or $55 per person at eventbrite.com. Type in “Art from the Heart 2.0” to find the event. Call Debbie Boggs at 423-266-1384 ext. 6 or email email@example.com for more information.
"Special thanks to our title sponsor BMW of Chattanooga, to and Cempa Community Care, Tennessee Valley Federal Credit Union, Athens Distributing and the SportsBarn of downtown Chattanooga for making this event possible," officials said.
