Over the summer, local artist, Courtney Herndon, and Garden Club of the Sandhills volunteer, Hartley Fitts, teamed up with members of the Boys & Girls Club of the Sandhills for a special project to benefit the Boys & Girls Club. Fitts and Herndon met with 12 elementary and middle school students to design notecards made with alcohol ink. The cards were then scanned and printed by Whistle Stop Press.
There are 21 unique designs created by Club members at the Boys & Girls Club of the Sandhills. They’re being sold in packs of seven cards plus seven envelopes for $10 per pack.
A few years ago, Fitts and members of the Garden Club of the Sandhills worked on a similar notecard project with members of the Boys & Girls Club of the Sandhills. Those cards were made with dried flowers. That particular fundraiser brought in nearly $10,000 for the Boys & Girls Club!
“They make for the perfect hostess gift or Christmas gift,” says a spokesman. “This is a wonderful fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Club and helps make it possible for the organization to serve more than 1,000 young people in our community this year with after school and summer camp youth development programs.”
