Students from South Piedmont Community College’s art programs recently donated pieces from their personal art collections to help benefit the 22nd Annual Hospice of Union County Golf Tournament.
Over the past 21 years, this tournament has raised over $1.7 million for Hospice of Union County programs and end-of-life care and services for patients and families in our community.
When notified of the need for items to be auctioned off at the event, many students eagerly volunteered their support by donating remarkable pieces of art including water-color prints, paintings on canvas, sculptures and charcoal prints.
“It’s wonderful to have students who want to give back to support those in our community,” Julie Sikes, VP of Institutional Advancement at SPCC and Hospice Board Member, said. “Hospice sincerely appreciates the student donations to their upcoming auction,” Sikes said. “This type of generosity truly impacts Hospice of Union County with all auction proceeds going directly to the patients and their families.”
