Local artist Lainey Benson thanks everyone who purchased a painting last month in support of her fundraising effort at Touchstones Nelson. The final tally came to $2,800. Here Benson is pictured donating the money to Rev. David Boyd representing the Kootenay Refugee Coalition.
“This group, and others like them, provide an invaluable service as it is their hard work that allows all of us to share a corner of our beautiful home with some of the world’s most unfortunate,” Benson said.
