Neu-Life Community Development hosted its 10th annual Youth Art Show and auction on May 13. All money raised will be used to support Neu-Life programs.
The organization’s young artists produced more than 30 pieces of art, a cookbook, journals and other creative items that were auctioned off. Attendees were also able to bid on spring garden cleanup service for their yard and a meal prepared and catered by the youth.
“We like to think of it as a ‘friendraiser’ where people from different communities can come and learn about our organization while we raise some money,” said Tracy Hrajnoha, director of partnerships & community engagement.
Neu-Life’s mission is to empower youth by equipping them with the information, strategies and support systems to have better self-images, develop better life management skills and make better life choices.
Last year the art show raised more than $6,000.
