LOCKPORT, N.Y. - Community Missions, Inc. and the YWCA of the Niagara Frontier, Inc. will come together for an evening of fun and art by hosting an Art Auction on Friday, June 14. The event will take place on-site at the YWCA of Niagara, located at 32 Cottage St. in Lockport. Admission is $20 per person and $30 per couple, with “couple” being loosely defined as any two people wanting to attend together.

Marlin Art of New York will present more than 150 pieces of art, memorabilia, and glass at the event. The artwork is expected to sell for 1/2 to 1/3 below gallery prices, and will give attendees a chance to support two impactful, local causes while purchasing new décor at great prices. 

Doors will open at 6 p.m. for a viewing of items, while the auction will commence at 7 p.m. The evening will also include hors d’oeuvres, sweet treats, a 50/50 raffle, and a cash bar. Tickets can be purchased online at www.communitymissions.org/art, or by calling either Susan Falbo at 716-285-3403 x.2225 or Jean Mullet-Hosey at 716-433-6714 x.226.
