Local Artists Raise Money for Spruce Run 

The Maine Valley Artists have teamed up with six Tim Horton’s Restaurants in the greater Bangor area for a good cause.Each artist is raffling off a painting and all the proceeds will go to Spruce Run in Bangor.Spruce Run is a non-profit organization that helps people affected by domestic violence.The artists feel it’s important to raise awareness about domestic violence and let people know anyone can be affected by it.Part of the project includes a meet and greet with the artists at a variety of local Tim Horton locations.Artists Lisa Lawson-Miller and Terri De Natale were at the Broadway location Sunday.” It’s important because first of all that artists are willing to paint for a cause. Which I think is wonderful and the cause is for Spruce Run, so the funds stay locally.”Ticket sales for the raffle end on Monday, September 27th and the drawings will be held on that Thursday the 30th.Tickets can be purchased at the Bangor Tim Horton’s on the Odlin Road, Broadway and Maine Street and also at the one in Old Town and in Newport and Skowhegan.
