The Family Service and Guidance Center presents a hybrid auction of works of art from the heart

TOPEKA (KSNT) — The Family Service & Guidance Center held its annual Works of Heart fundraising event Friday night at the Maner Conference Center.

The annual event included a social hour with jazz music, an auction preview including meet the artists, and a silent, live auction. Auction items included professional artwork, photography, handcrafted jewelry, home decor and more.

“A lot of extra planning has gone into hosting an in-person event this year,” said Pam Evans, FSGC’s director of marketing and development. “We are limiting attendance to 225 people instead of the usual 400 and more. Tables will be spread out, guests will be asked to socially distance and masks will be required. »

“The stars of the show are our featured artists from Œuvres de cœur: 13 talented young FSGC clients who have created colorful and exceptional works of art. In-person guests will have the opportunity to speak with our artists during a social distance meet-and-greet. Each of the featured artists will also have the chance to take the stage with their art as it is auctioned live. Seeing them respond to the increasing bids is always a highlight of the evening.
