On April 13th, 2013, our good friend Betty Wilson's Dixie Art Loft and The Craft Gallery was broken into. Fortunately, no one was at the Gallery when the robbery occurred, but the thieves made off with a lot of Betty's property "“ over $3,800 worth. Virtually everything electronic Betty had of value in the Gallery was stolen, including her cash register, computer and external storage, monitor, printer, iPad, iPod, digital camera, Apple TV and accessories, DVD player, stereo and as well as numerous other items and damaged property. Regrettably, the value of the stolen and damaged property didn't meet Betty's insurance deductible for replacement. Betty is an amazing part of our local art community. I'm setting up this drive so that Betty can purchase new items as quickly possible, so that she can once again start having art openings and workshops and so she can be reminded that there are good people in the world.
We've set up reward levels for the donations, so you will not only feel good about helping, but also get a little reward as well. Once we've reached our goal, we will have a special art opening at the Craft Gallery to celebrate!
