ART FOR ARFS SAKE 2017-03-13T12:27:13+00:00

Fall down the rabbit hole into Art For Arf’s Sake, a live art auction unlike any you’ve ever seen before!  You’ll land at the Reading Public Museum on Saturday, May 13, 2017 for a whimsical Wonderland of one-of-a-kind works of art created by artisans from here at home and all over the world. Curiouser and curiouser items, antiques and prize packages await your bid at the silent auction and raffle table! This isn’t your ordinary tea party; expect great food plus full complimentary bar service. Art for Arf’s Sake brings art and experiences from the quirky to the sublime to our friends and supporters for an unbelievable evening of bidding and entertainment, and it all benefits the animals and programs of Humane Pennsylvania partner shelters, The Humane League of Lancaster County and The Humane Society of Berks County!

Inspired by Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, guests are always encouraged, though not required, to take part in the theme and arrive in style. So, if the Cheshire Cat asks, “Where do you want to go?” Respond by saying, “Art For Arf’s Sake!”
