Thank you so much for offering to ask the Wilmington Art Association to send out an email blast regarding possible donations for Coastal Animal Rescue Effort’s Third Annual Benefit and Silent Auction.
As we discussed, I’m volunteering for Coastal Animal Rescue Effort (CARE) which is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization set up by Atlantic Animal Hospital across from Mayfaire. The organization is designed to provide care to homeless animals in medical need (with specialists, surgeries, medicines, etc.) and to help them find homes once they are healthy. They are the only animal rescue around that is specific to those pets that need medical attention, something most other rescues do not have the facilities to provide. CARE’s ultimate goal is to build a non-profit no-kill veterinarian run animal shelter here in Wilmington. I’ve attached some information.
CARE is having its Third Annual Benefit, The Pets Rock Event, on Friday, March 21nd where there will be a silent auction, live music, food etc… and we were hoping some local artists might consider donating art for the silent auction. We expect to have a great turnout so there will definitely be good exposure for the artists. We are happy to include a bio, or any information the artists send, next to the artwork and all donors will be recognized on CARE’s website based on donation value.
CARE is truly a wonderful cause and the proceeds raised from these donations will help provide care, shelter, and finally a home for animals in need. We thank the artists for considering becoming part of our benefit.
Thanks so much,
Susan Agnoff, Volunteer On Behalf Of CARE

Artists’ Studio & Supplies Clear Out Event
Many members are taking advantage of the cold weather to clean up their studios and are finding treasures they can no longer use. For February’s program WAA will be hosting a White Elephant-type event to help distribute this hidden wealth. This event is open to all WAA members and guests and will take place just after the regular WAA monthly business meeting on February 13. No commissions, no fees.....
Gently used art supplies can be free or have a reasonable price clearly marked on each one. No charges; cash or check only. Each participant must provide an inventory for the use of the sales table and should use a code so that items are easily tracked for payment to the participating artist. (KBili – 1, KBili – 2, etc.) at the conclusion of the event. Two people will be needed to man a check-out area; contact Kay Bilisoly email@example.com if you would like to do this.
This is not an artwork sale. If you haven’t already started your “what do I do with this pile” what are you waiting for? Here’s your chance to get rid of it. Bring supplies only—such as
· supplies (brushes, palettes)
· drawing materials
· collage ephemera
· jewelry supplies,
· FREE stuff!
