Clarksville, TN – The Clarksville Association of Realtors is excited to announce its Appetite For Art Fundraiser benefiting the FUEL food ministry and the CAR S.O.S Foundation featuring artwork from students across the city.
Through our partnerships with FUEL and S.O.S., CAR has raised over $103,000 over the last 13 years to help feed those children in our community that may not receive enough to eat at home… many whom have likely been in your classes or on your sports teams over the years.
The Helping Hands Committee is asking the public for artwork to be donated that will potentially be auctioned off at Appetite for Art. The artwork should be created by students of art, ages ranging from preschool through college.
The artist should depict what “Healthy Eating” means to them; or looks like in their life; or feels like to them. The submission must be an original work of art on an 8.5” x11” page or a 3D work or art able to fit within an 8×10 sized box completed by the student only.
Any art medium will be accepted, as long as it can be displayed within the stated size requirement. The winning artists will receive a healthy eating gift basket and free admission to the event for the student and the student’s immediate family. Additionally, the winning students’ original artwork will be framed and auctioned live at the event.
The artwork must be completed and available for pick-up or dropped off to the Clarksville Association of REALTORS® office by 8:00am on Friday, February 21st, 2020. The winners will be notified by Friday, March 13th. Limit one entry per student. The name of the artist/student, age and a parent contact number must appear somewhere on the artwork.
F.U.E.L. (Full of Emmaus Love) is a food subsidization program designed to feed Clarksville-Montgomery County school children through the weekend whose only food source may be the meals they are receiving at school. Individually wrapped items are discreetly made available to the qualifying students each Friday.
The program is funded solely through donations and local fundraising efforts and operated through local churches and civic organizations.
The S.O.S. Foundation was founded in 2019 to capitalize on the association’s fundraising efforts with the goal of being able to help numerous local charities. For more information, to make a donation go to www.clarksvilleaor/SOS.com
