St. Helena Elementary School’s art program was named the beneficiary of the Giving Tree, decorated by members of the Dataw Island Visual Arts Club as part of the annual Holiday Boutique.
Club members and their guests were treated to an early holiday kick-off with unique handcrafted items and fine art to purchase, musical entertainment by Island vocalists, and delicious hors d’oeuvres. Beautiful ornaments created during Visual Arts Club workshops were sold with all proceeds going to the art program at the school. Club president, Barb Carakostas, said over $1,000 will be donated to help support art education in local schools.
Special thanks go to the Boutique Co-chairs Lynn Baker and JoAnn Schneider who were assisted by a host of helpers. Photos by Brooke Schuster and Barb Carakostas.
