Spotlight on Art Returning to Benefit Three Local Youth-Serving Organizations

$50,000 raised at first-year event in November at Hotel CarmichaelSpotlight on Art

Last November, Esther Lakes, Chairwoman and Founder of Spotlight on Art Benefiting Children and her team of community leaders, successfully raised $50,000 to support the youth of Prevail, Inc., the Tom & Soni Sheehan Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville and Children’s TherAplay Foundation, Inc.  Building off of their first year’s accomplishments, the event committee is looking forward to hosting another Spotlight on Art this November 9th.

“A sincere thank you to all who helped make our first Spotlight on Art Benefiting Children a success: our sponsors, the award-winning artists, the teachers and students who donated children’s art, and especially those who attended and purchased art,” stated Lakes.  “Because of the community’s generosity, the Spotlight on Art committee was able to donate $50,000 to three youth-serving organizations that are making a positive impact in our community.”

Once again, this premier evening of art and philanthropy will be held at Hotel Carmichael in Carmel.  Guests are invited to attend and have the opportunity to support children who face life’s challenges by shopping with local awarding-winning artists as well as artwork from local student artists.  Each will be selling pieces that may enrich the lives of the purchaser, while enriching the lives of the local children that need this support the most.

“I have always believed in the greatness and ingenuity of people of Hamilton County,” stated Honorary Event Chair, retired judge Steve Nation.  “We come together to provide answers for the needs of our citizens and to set a better course.  This is what we are supporting through this event, Prevail, Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville, and Children’s TherAplay.  These organizations have proven their commitment and ability to provide our children and their families with the tools to overcome their situations. I know that we will not stop until each child has the possibility of reaching their own greatness.”

“We invite everyone to consider attending this premier evening of art and philanthropy that supports children’s charities, thanks to the talent of local and student artists,” stated Lakes.  “With a bit of support from many, enriching the lives of these diverse groups of children, it’s possible to make so many dreams come true!”
