Bolton to Cambodia
Keith Lavit of Bolton Landing and Brooklyn is hosting a benefit to build “Spring of Hope School” in Svay Khleang, Cambodia. Lavit is planning a fundraiser, the first annual Art Auction and Dance, for the school.
The event is set for Oct. 21 at the Streg Lab For Action Mechanics, a trapeze academy in Brooklyn. Keith is looking for area artists interested in donating a piece of work for this charitable cause. Aside from artwork, he is compiling a gift package to promote tourism and entice bidders to come to the Lake George Region by offering dining, lodging, and attraction gift certificates. Those interested in making a donation or attending the benefit, contact Wauneata Waller at 644-3880 or: firstname.lastname@example.org.
