Santa's Sleigh Fundraiser

This Thursday The Second Floor Lounge will be holding be holding A Night of Art, Music, Raffles, Fashion in support of the Santas Sleigh Program put on by The Kawartha-Halibuton Childrens Foundation.

This is the 22nd year of the Santa’s Sleigh program. Until 1999, the Kawartha-Haliburton Children's Aid Society administered the program. Since then the program has been run by the Kawartha-Haliburton Children's Foundation, the fundraising branch of the CAS. The Foundation raises funds for children who are in the care or protection of the CAS. All gifts go to the children who are either Crown Wards of CAS (i.e. the child's legal guardian), children in the care of CAS (living in foster or group homes) or children under the supervision of the CAS (child is at home & CAS is involved with the family). Not all children involved with the CAS will receive gifts from Santa's Sleigh. Only children who are not likely to receive very much at Christmas time (due to the family's situation) are included. CAS social workers submit names of children on their caseloads that they know will benefit from it. They also make the gift suggestions and deliver the gifts.

I have 6 paintings in the show including the brand spanking new one above. Come by and support the kids.
