17th Annual For Kids’ Sake Art Auction

Carbondale – The deadline to submit art to the 17th Annual For Kids’ Sake (FKS) Art Auction is almost here. Student artists are invited to donate art to the fundraiser by December 30, 2016. Selected art will be professionally framed and hung in the Art Auction from March 28 – April 28, 2017, at the Longbranch Café & Bakery in Carbondale, IL.

During the Auction, patrons place silent bids on the donated art pieces. All proceeds benefit For Kids’ Sake, a nonprofit based in Carbondale that supports over 4,000 students and 550 orphans in Bangladesh. All participating artists are guaranteed to make a difference in the lives of the kids in Bangladesh as only $3.00 can provide an orphan with new bedding for the winter.

All donated art must be two-dimensional and unframed. FKS will notify all of the artists whose artworks are selected. These artists will have their work professionally framed, and these students will be publicly recognized at the Art Auction. All selected artwork will be considered a donation, and all unselected artwork can be returned to the artists.

Artists can drop off or mail artworks to:
