Art is meant to be shared, and as an artist, I feel it is important to support my community and various charitable causes as I can. It is my way of paying it forward and being a good steward of my talents. I often hear complaints from artists about the endless stream of requests for work to be donated for fundraisers. While we can't contribute to every request, we can certainly make choices for venues we care to support.
One such opportunity that I will be supporting is the Christian Benefit Auction coming up on Sunday, April 24, 2016. This event will be held at the Billings Depot, 2310 Montana Avenue, Billings, MT from 4-7pm. If you attend you will find my artwork, quilts, gift packages, trips and lots more to bid on, along with food and great company. The money raised goes to scholarships for campers and operations for the camp. Though this camp is supported by the Lutheran churches in the region, it is open for anyone who wishes to attend and kids from all over the country come here. All four of my kids attended from their 5th grade year to high school graduation and loved it. Many campers come back as counselors after they have graduated.
Christikon is a Bible Camp located in the Rocky Mountains just north of Yellowstone National Park, near the heart of the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness Area, in some of the loveliest country in the world, about 47 miles southwest of Big Timber, Montana.
LCGS houses the offices for Christikon, a Lutheran Bible Camp for youth and family. Christikon staff may be contacted at 406-932-6300 in summer, or 406-656-1969 during the off-season. More information is available at their website Christikon.org
Creativity has been my life and I would like to share some of my thoughts, learning and fun facts with you.
