Spoon River College Athletics is hosting a fundraiser with Canvas-Connections on Friday, January 28 at 6 p.m. at the Elks Lodge in Canton, located at 61 W Elm.

The event is open to the public (no artistic talent necessary, the pros will walk you through it), and attendees will be creating a 4′ solid wood gnome leaner. The gnomes can be painted for spring, in a sports outfit, or as an everyday guy or gal, in each artist’s choice of style and color.

Doors open at 5:15 p.m. with food available for purchase. There will also be a cash bar, raffles, 50-50 drawing, and a bake sale. Painting starts at 6 p.m. Cost is $49 cash or check paid directly at the Multi-Purpose Building on the Canton Campus, or through online registration at www.canvas-connections.com/srcgnomefundraiser with a credit/debit card for an additional $5 to cover third party transaction fees.
