Art With Heart
Join us November 7th from 5-7 PM to sample tastings and peruse art from community artists!
Join us to sample tastings from area wineries, breweries and cider mills along with art from community artists and VOA program participants, staff and volunteers available for purchase. The event is at Volunteers of America's campus at 214 Lake Avenue in Rochester, just minutes from downtown.
Art with Heart features tastings from area wineries, breweries, and cider mills, as well as artwork from community artists and VOA program participants for sale. All proceeds from purchased art work during the show will support Volunteers of America’s programming in Rochester for impoverished children, at risk youth, homeless families, veterans, parolees, and low-income seniors.
From the impoverished 3 and 4 year olds enrolled in Prekindergarten at the Children’s Center to the seniors at risk of homelessness staying at Cobblestone senior living, everyone involved in VOA’s programs has a story to tell. Whether it’s a veteran with mental health problems in need of supportive housing or a young mother escaping domestic violence who needs help with her transition, Volunteers of America helps people overcome the crisis in their lives and become empowered to reach their full potential.
In the spirit of healing and working to achieve their objectives, we asked our program participants to illustrate what hope looks like to them. The resulting works of art and the stories behind them so inspired us we wanted to share them with the community.
Enjoy the tastings and art and learn about the amazing individuals VOA works with on a daily basis, take a tour of our state-of-the-art Children’s Center, and see how you can make a difference!
