On March 26th, 2022, the 21st Annual ForKids Art Auction, Making Waves, rolled into town like a high spring tide, raising $1.6 million to end family homelessness.

 

ForKids friends gathered in a magical tent beneath the sea for this beloved community fundraiser. Extravagantly costumed sea creatures raised their paddles high to bid on priceless children’s art with titles like “How to Impress a Snail” and “Who Needs a Hug?”

 

As the mist cleared and the sea floor settled, this year’s rising tide lifted families and children out of poverty and homelessness right here in Southeastern Virginia.  

 

You helped us make waves of change in this community!

I will call him Benley.”
