The Sherman Art league was privileged to be invited to help MasterKey Ministries with their Spring fundraiser. Of course, what better theme than children? SAL joined with other artists in the area to paint children's chairs that depicted books read by children. MasterKey provided the chairs and new books to pair with each chair. Each chair was sold in a silent auction. All were sold at the asking minimum price of $200 and some received higher bids! A beautiful luncheon was held in the ballroom of the Municipal Building. The chairs were, magnificently displayed on tables covered in black cloth. Children from MasterKey provided the entertainment. It is my understanding that this is their first fundraiser and it was so professionally presented, it appeared they had been doing it for years. A BEAUTIFUL event! Cleverly named HEART to HEART.
MasterKey After School Program — a program providing homework assistance, tutoring of children with specific needs, enrichment activities, and character training through requiring responsibility, truthfulness and respect.
MasterKey After School Program aims to cooperate with local public and private school officials to promote the success of students in the community, but especially to families that would be considered at high risk.
In particular, Hispanic families that face language barriers are in great need of assistance for their children in the area of communication with their children’s teachers and schools, homework help, and bridging the cultural gap in the community. To meet this need and to also provide assistance to other parents, this program connects directly with teachers to provide assistance, communication, and accountability as needed.
