Artists Donate Work for Red Cross Gala

Posted: Updated:

The Erie Chapter of the American Red Cross hosted its Annual Art Gala & Exhibition on Sunday at the Ambassador Conference Center.

The exhibit showcased 51 pieces of donated from local artists, which ranged from sculptures to paintings.

Tickets to the gala ran for $250 per couple, and each couple gets to take home a unique art piece.

All of the money raised stays in the community and benefits the local American Red Cross.

"Almost weekly we're hearing about a fire in the news that leaves a family homeless. And Red Cross steps in 24 hours per day, seven days per week, to step in and help that family with emergency needs - such as clothing, shelter, and food," said Pam Masi, Executive Director of the Greater Erie County Chapter of the Red Cross.

The gala raised more than $10,000 dollars.
