In the midst of winter, it may be difficult to find inspiration in one’s surroundings. Habitat for Humanity of Oshkosh provides just the right opportunity for creative transportation with its 5th annual “Home is where the heART is” benefit. The event will use the power of art and entertainment to support the Habitat mission to build homes, community and hope.
The benefit will take place on Saturday, February 21st at LaSure’s Banquet Hall, Oshkosh. Participants will enjoy a dinner, auction of art and gift baskets and live musical entertainment. Many of Oshkosh’s best artists have donated pieces of their work to be auctioned to the highest bidder, with proceeds going to support the Habitat mission to build homes and improve lives in the Oshkosh area.
Last year, “Home is where the heART is” drew 200 attendees and the participation of 21 local artists and 45 local businesses. The event also served as a “year in review” opportunity to display the impact of Habitat Oshkosh in our community.
The work of many of the artists that will be featured at this year’s event will be shown at the Oshkosh Gallery Walk on February 7th, 2015 from 6pm to 9pm. The Oshkosh Gallery Walk is held on the first Saturday of each month starting in January.
