The Hungry Hearts Art Auction will be held this Saturday, Feb. 11, from 6-7 p.m. at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Boone. The cost is $5 at the door and light hors d’oeuvres will be served. There will be a combination live and silent auction of 8-inch wooden hearts painted by local, well-known artists, which include:
Dave and Judy Davis
All proceeds will benefit F.A.R.M. Cafe, a pay-what-you-can community cafe that will open inside Boone Drug Downtown in April 2012. The restaurant will provide quality and delicious meals produced from local sources, served in a restaurant where everybody eats, regardless of means. Images of the hearts will be available on their website, www.farmcafe.org
How It Works
At F.A.R.M. Cafe, customers pay what they can. Those who can pay more than the daily suggested price will be encouraged to do so, so that others who cannot afford a meal can simply eat. Those who cannot pay may volunteer for an hour in exchange for a meal.
