Eighteen local kids are creating art to raise funds to cure arthritis, the disease that they struggle with every day.
The Arthritis Foundation's Arts for Arthritis program increases awareness that “kids get arthritis too.” It teams local children affected by juvenile arthritis with area artists to create unique pieces of artwork. This art is auctioned off at the D'Vine Affair Gala to raise money for arthritis research and local community programs.
Art masterpieces are on display the entire month of August at the Lowcountry Artists Gallery located at 148 East Bay St., Charleston, South Carolina. The pieces are now available for bidding via online auction at www.dvineaffair.org. Anything not sold by Sept. 6 will go on the auction block at the D'Vine Affair. The gala will take place Saturday, Sept. 6, at 7 p.m. at Memminger Auditorium. The event is open to the public and will feature food, wine and live music from Joe Clarke Swing Band. Tickets can be purchased at www.dvineaffair.org.
