Helping Hand for Nepal is a not-for-profit group raising funds to provide relief in Nepal. This year, proceeds go specifically to covid relief, as approximately half of the Nepali population has been affected.
Paintings for Nepal is an annual fundraiser benefiting Helping Hand for Nepal. Local artists donate pieces to be auctioned off in an epic silent auction. The paintings can be seen, and bid on, here at Blaines; bidding begins June 1st and ends promptly at 6:30pm Alaska Time on June 14th.
There will be a First Friday celebration on the patio at Blaines Friday, June 4th from 5-7pm where you can see the beautiful pieces, meet some of the artists, indulge in some tasty bbq favorites, and get the bids flowing! Then, from 5:30-6:30 on June 14th, join us once again on the patio for root beer floats, final bids, and big celebrations as we get these beautiful pieces to their new homes!
Below are a few of the pieces being auctioned off. We are SUPER lucky to have some incredibly talents artists here in the Land of the Midnight Sun! Let’s provide some relief (and we don’t mean the sculptural kind)!
