Zonta Club of Hiidenvesi organizes charity auction
The Zonta Club of Hiidenvesi, Finland, partnered with a local art supply store to organize a charity auction. This partnership happened after the club discovered that people willing to donate a piece of art for charity often contact the art store for advice.
The club and art supply store contacted potential donors to inform them of an upcoming charity auction sponsored by the club. The first auction took place in September, and of the original 73 art pieces donated, a third of them were sold.
All proceeds went to the local meeting place for seniors to organize daytime activities ranging from arts to exercise. After the first auction, the club is looking forward to making the charity auction an annual event.
