Grand Rapids, Mich. (March 8, 2023) – Mel Trotter Ministries, the largest provider of services to people experiencing homelessness in West Michigan, will host its second annual Art & Experience Auction on March 23, 2023 at The Goei Center. All proceeds from the event will benefit Mel Trotter Ministries’ art therapy program.
“The Art & Experience Auction is a wonderful opportunity to showcase the work of artists across our community and support our art therapy program at the same time,” said Beth Fisher, Chief Advancement Officer for Mel Trotter. “Art is a therapeutic experience for many of our guests which provides purpose and joy in their lives. This program allows them to discover, and in some cases, rediscover their love for it.”
The silent auction will include artwork donated by local artists, Mel Trotter art therapy participants, as well as pieces from private collections. Additionally, a variety of Grand Rapids “experiences” will also be available for bidding, including vacation rentals, an in-home private chef experience and tickets to a local sports event.
Date: March 23, 2023
Time: 6:00 P.M.
Location: The Goei Center, 818 Butterworth St SW, Grand Rapids, MI 49504
