Way back in July when we first invited you to FurnARTure, the signature event to benefit The Studio at Living Opportunities, we had no idea our very own body shop manager was putting his skills to work on a couple pieces to be auctioned off at the event. It was only after the Adirondack chairs were built and about to be painted that Guy Fowler let us in on the action. With a tiny bit of help in the form of a stencil Guy created a pair of lovely his-n-hers chairs featuring a tree theme. The coolest part is that he used automotive paint (it’s hard to see how beautifully they shine!) so this yard décor is truly weather resistant!
On a side note, the event yesterday went fabulously. The nearly-sold-out crowd went wild for an assortment of furniture and wall décor, all to raise funds to keep The Studio open. Butler Automotive Group is beyond proud to support Living Opportunities and The Studio, and invite you to learn more and get involved.
If you don’t already have plans for Sunday, September 7th we’d like to invite you to one of the most unique events around. It’s FurnARTure, the signature event to benefit The Studio at Living Opportunities. The afternoon fete involves the auctioning of dozens of masterpieces, everything from canvases to photography, jewelry to sculpture, to furniture that’s been turned into gorgeous, functional art. The proceeds go to support The Studio which is part of Living Opportunities, a non-profit organization that supports those with developmental disabilities in living independently and meeting their employment potential (see video above).
Linda Butler is excited to be on the art selection committee for this year’s event. Other employees are pitching in, too, doing everything from assisting the planning committee to volunteering to voice the radio and television advertisements, to gathering friends and family to attend the party with them. Oh, and we’re helping sell tickets for the amazing “Gallery of Travel” raffle (see details below)!
There will be music, food, art, artists, wine, good company, and the warm feeling that comes with knowing you’re making someone’s world better just by being there. For more information or to purchase tickets visit http://www.livingopps.org/events/.
