The LowCountry Habitat for Humanity ReStore is celebrating its 10 years of operation with an art auction like no other. Local and regional artists are treasure hunting within the store’s aisles for items to repurpose, recycle, reclaim or reimagine. They’re looking for the sometimes hidden beauty in gently-used items to create works of art. These new creations will be auctioned at an Upcycled Art Auction to be held at The Shed in Port Royal on Saturday, August 23, from 6 to 9 p.m.
According to Habitat’s Executive Director, Brenda Dooley, “If you’re one of those people who has been missing the fun and creativity of the Birdhouse Auctions that Habitat used to host, you will not want to miss this event.”
The auction’s Honorary Chair is artist Cassandra Gillens. Another local artist, Deanna Bowdish, will serve as the evening’s auctioneer. Entertainment will be provided by the Sweetgrass Angels.
Tickets for the event are $25 and are available now at the ReStore at 612 Parris Island Gateway or online at www.lowcountryhabitat.org. Proceeds from the evening will support LowCountry Habitat for Humanity’s affordable housing program.
