Local artists are using their talents to help raise money for the American Red Cross.
This year marks the 6th Annual American Red Cross Art Gala. Over 50 pieces of art work, done in a number of mediums, are donated by artists in Erie and the surrounding regions.
Wednesday their donated work was on display. Then, in a few weeks, each person who attends the gala, will get to take home one of these pieces.
"It showcases out cause, it showcases local artists and what a great community this is for art. It also raises funds as we're going into our fire season so that we're prepared to serve clients that have been put out of their home."
The gala is on November 17. Tickets can be purchased by calling the American Red Cross at (814) 833-0942.
