Collaborative Fundraiser Sees Success

A fundraiser organized by the East Aurora Art Society and Friends of the Aurora Public Library came to a close on March 24 and it raised over $1,200.

The community was invited to buy votes to judge and earn a chance to win their favorite work of art in the Painted Spring Plant Pot Fundraiser. Eleven lucky participants in the raffle got to take home one of these amazing creations adorned by local artists.

J.R. Orlowski, Paula Klocek and John Miliotto (L-R) hold the winning flowerpots from the recent fundraiser between the East Aurora Art Society and the Aurora Town Public Library. “Hola Frida” by J.R.Orlowski, was voted first; “Fairy House” by Walt Carrick, second and “Lady Bug & Bees” by J.R Orlowski, placed third. The winning pots were selected by voting from the community, and raised $1,226 to benefit the library.
