In light of the heightened cases of COVID-19 in Huntington County, LaFontaine Arts Council made the tough decision to postpone one of their biggest fundraisers. Fashion for the Arts is traditionally a ticketed event featuring a catered meal, fashion show, and arts advocate speaker. A future date has yet to be determined as many of the events and programs that LAC offers are being reimagined.
A large part of the excitement is the Fashion for the Arts, silent auction where people compete for their favorite items by penciling in bids for items donated by LAC board members. All of this happens right before Christmas and some guests get rather competitive. This year has posed many obstacles for the Council’s operations but dedicated board members are determined to carry on our mission to present and promote the arts in Huntington County.
With the Holiday themed auction potentially being cancelled due to the postponement of the Fashion for the Arts event, LAC geared up to switch platforms. You can bid today through December 4th, 2020 on holiday items at https://lac.betterworld.org and make a contribution to LAC’s Arts in Education programming for Huntington County. Many items are from local retailers because LAC holds great value for local businesses and their sponsorships for our events throughout the year. Tis the season for thankfulness and giving after all!
