Fifth graders at Maxwell Elementary will host Night of Food & Art for the Lexington Rescue Mission on Friday, April 12.
The plan for the fundraiser was created by students Sierra O-Brien, Caleb Robinson, Mason Gohde, and Jenna Gorman. The evening will include a cooking demonstration and food tasting provided by students from Sullivan University, along with an art auction including work from Georgetown Ice House Gallery, turquoise jewelry, personalized painting, photographs on canvas, and water color paintings on cloth.
Lexington Rescue Mission is a Christian ministry that strives to meet the needs of the city’s poor and homeless throughout the year by serving hot meals and helping people build and maintain independent living through life-skills classes, job-readiness training and counseling.
Maxwell School is at 301 Woodland Avenue.
