Regina Leader Post. Bryan Thompson. March 13, 2019.
Eight-year-old Courtney Rose of Cambridge has already selected an artwork she plans to purchase at this year’s Art from the Attic sale.
The image, depicting a mother and baby giraffe, belonged to the youngster’s cousin.
“She wanted me to donate it for her,” said Rose, the granddaughter of sale organizer Donna Howell. “I really like it because giraffes are one of my favourite animals.”
Howell is a member of the Grand River Grannies, who host the sale at Glenhyrst Art Gallery and is now in its third year.
All proceeds go to the Stephen Lewis Foundation supporting African grandmothers and the 15 million AIDS orphans in their care.
