We’re excited about the wonderful live and silent auction items that will be available at this year’s Corks & Forks, but we know that many of you may not want more “stuff,” regardless of how fabulous the items are. In that’s you, we invite you to support the “Giving Tree.”
How does the Giving Tree work?
A striking manzanita tree, decorated with beautiful artwork generously painted and donated by The Art Guild of Orange Park, will take center stage at this year’s Corks & Forks. With a gift of $50 or above, you will be able to select and take home a stunning piece of original art from the tree, while knowing that your generous gift will help provide hope, health and healing to the underserved by directing your gift to the St. Vincent’s Pediatric Mobile Health Outreach Ministry.
Since 2004, the Pediatric Mobile Health Outreach Ministry has provided children with free immunizations, school and sports physicals, and new backpacks filled with school supplies to arm them with tools for success as they head back to school. Last year 3,172 school physicals and 649 immunizations were provided. Sports physicals give underserved children the chance to play team sports and participate in after-school activities. Research shows participating in school sports and activities helps children become successful adults and more involved community members.
Each piece of artwork, shown below, is on a 4″ x 4″ piece of wood and is suitable for framing, hanging or display. If you see something you love, and would like to purchase the artwork before the event, please contact Jessica Waugaman at 904-296-3823 or Jessica.firstname.lastname@example.org.
