You are invited to the 10th Annual Artful Bench and Bar, benefiting Children’s Legal and Educational Resource Centre (CLERC), October 20, 2016 at 6 pm, Hotel Arts 119 – 12 Ave SW.
Children’s Legal and Educational Resource Centre (CLERC) has been focused on the well-being of children for over a decade. The kids we help are in dysfunctional family situations; they’ve endured the death of a parent, have witnessed domestic violence or are dealing with the perils of living in poverty. They want to stay in school, for their employers to pay them for their summer job, for their parents not to take out their anger over the divorce on them. They are kids forced to deal with adult situations who have nowhere else to turn for help.
This year’s event will include a live and silent auction featuring art and experiences. Enjoy a welcome glass of prosecco provided by beverage sponsor Vine Styles while listening toEmpowering Minds Live & Unsigned youth talent winner James van der Baaren. Dine on Japanese inspired fare and enjoy the sounds of a youth jazz quartet while bidding and networking into the late evening hours. Thank you for your support!
