OPEN STUDIOS ARTISTS DONATE TO BUTTE FIRE DISASTER RELIEF
After much consideration, the ACAA went ahead with its scheduled studio tour September 19 and 20. A decision was made by the artists to donate half of the proceeds from the raffle, usually earmarked for the scholarship fund, to the Butte Fire Disaster Relief Fund administered through the Amador Community Foundation.
This resulted in a record yield for the raffle. Along with additional funds from individual artists,
ACAA President Judy Day and Open Studios Chair Karen Crane
presented a check to ACF for $900.00.
Karen stated, “I am so proud of the open hearted generosity of our artist group!
Thank you all for your full participation in Open Studios,
despite the chaotic circumstances, and for your desire and willingness to contribute.”
