Volunteer Erika Scully creates the art display for the silent auction
Pamela Bell wasted no time once joining the Board of Trustees, serving on the Strategic Planning committee, chairing our 2012 Gala and most impressively, founding a volunteer arts initiative for the men at 3rd Street Shelter.
The Bowery Arts Program, less than a year old, is an informal creative class where volunteers and clients connect while making all forms of art. The classes – held on Wednesday and Thursday mornings—provide men struggling with addiction a creative outlet to express their emotions and foster new friendships.
At the 22nd Annual Gala Benefit and Auction 40 pieces of client art were auctioned off, raising more than $5,300 for Project Renewal. A very big thank you to Pamela and an amazing group of volunteers who attend the workshops each week including Shelley Sonenberg, Shelagh Herzog, Erika Scully, Laura Rothschild, Caryn Levit, Jemme Aldridge and Susan Minot.
