Donation of $2,020 to the St. Helena Elementary School’s Art Program

On Saturday, October 2 Dataw residents and guests enjoyed VAC’s 2021 Fall Fest with glorious weather, talented artists and clubs selling their wares, fabulous music by the popular RK’s, and a fundraiser for the St. Helena Elementary School art program!  What a great day!

VAC is grateful for the kind generosity of the people of Dataw as they purchased raffle tickets for a chance to win wonderful prizes. A total of $1,520 was raised from ticket sales to which VAC contributed an additional $500 for a total donation of $2,020 to the St. Helena Elementary’s art program. Abby Cochrane, the school’s art teacher, has earmarked the money for student portfolio sketchbooks, a student planter project to beautify the school, and the purchase of student-friendly furniture and equipment to create an inspirational learning environment. 

A message from the school…

Thank you so much for your generous donation. I am so sorry that I was unable to meet you in person. I can tell you that the funds donated to Ms. Cochran will be put to good use for our students and she will send you pictures along the way.
