Art Postcard Show a Success!

The 2nd Annual MJHS PTSA Art Postcard Show was a big success — we raised $975!

We’d like to thank Natalie Rosbottom (and family!) for a wonderful job leading and organizing this event. Big thanks also to Billy & Tait Rosbottom, Sonia & Luke Fuller, Erica Jong, Oliver Guynes, and Kim Melton for volunteering!

This year we introduced a silent auction, with beautiful artwork and crafts donated by Kelly Hartley, Julie Stoverink, Kimberly Durham-Wright, Leigh Griffin, Spencer Scott, Allen Hoss, Ceri McCarron, Candace McCollough, and Nina Thomas.

Art teachers Ms. DeLong and Ms. Shepard got their students involved, donated their own postcards, and provided a raffle prize!

Thank you Rahel Belfield & staff at Grant Park Coffee House for the fantastic gallery space and staying open late to serve delicious baked desserts!

And finally, to everyone who donated the AMAZING art postcards themselves, we couldn’t have done this without you! Thank you!!
