March 13, 2014 by SoWal Staff

Make plans to attend “How Great Thou Art” art auction and raffle coming to Celebration Hall on Thursday, April 24. You'll have a chance to bid on unique pieces of art by local artists. Also, attendees will be treated to a fabulous fare complete with cocktails and live entertainment in a stunning South Walton setting. Beautiful glass works of art by 2014 Walton County Artist of the Year Mary Hong will be featured, including pieces created at Hong's recent art sessions with campers.

In fact, this event was inspired by Mary Hong’s special art sessions with Holy Kidz campers in December, 2013. How Great Thou Art event will feature these works as well as other select local artists, such as Allison Wickey and Robin Cannon. The evening will also include amazing raffles, such as a BOTE board, a stunning necklace from Adorn by Samouce, a beach portrait photography session from Melanie Barrett, merchandise from Blue Giraffe, and many more great prizes!

Since the non-profit organization’s founding, Holy Kidz Camps has been devoted to the growing and nurturing of children in a safe, fun-filled environment since 2006. The camps are held at various faith based locations throughout the Okaloosa and Walton communities. Scholarships are also given out to those children less fortunate in the community, so that every child has the opportunity to experience fulfilling and nurturing, faith based fun and learning.

“We are thrilled for this opportunity to work with barber and gall promotions and raise funds to further progress our children’s camps,” says Tami Carr, Founder, Holy Kidz Camps. “Our goal is to share God’s love with children ages 4 to 16 and for them to have a personal relationship with him. While they are learning these life values, they build relationships with new friends and enjoy fun activities in a safe environment.”
