The donation of $ 3,984.39 will help Bonham Animal Shelter build fences for dog runs. Work on the roof of the new annex is expected to begin soon.

“The Creative Arts Center is a non-profit organization,” Ms. Wilson continued. “We continue to provide free art classes to children, teens and seniors through donations. I think giving people the opportunity to express themselves artistically is of great importance. The ability to pay should not be a limiting factor. I decided to share the benefits of this event with the animal shelter, because the animals left there have no choice, they have no voice, they deserve the best facilities and care possible. Our refuge is small and currently under renovation to expand, but the expansion requires more funding. More funding can house more unwanted and abused animals, creating more space and more time to find their permanent homes. “
