3rd Annual Franklin Street Ornament Contest
All proceeds go to Franklin Street Events Association’s “Christmas-A-Kid” Progrm
Want to create the design for 2016’s collectible Franklin Street Ornament?
The Christmas-a-Kid Program, an annual charity funded by sales of the ARTSWIN & FSEA’s Holiday Ornaments, purchases under-privileged local area children gifts during the holiday season. ALL proceeds of the 2016 Holiday Ornament Sale will go to FSEA’s Christmas-a-Kid Program.
For the third year, an artist’s design will be chosen to be featured on a collectable ornament. The chosen artist will also create 20 handcrafted versions of the design, which will be sold at FSEA’s annual “A Dicken’s Christmas” event on Franklin Street, along with the mass produced ornaments. After production costs and a 10% cut to the artist, all sales will be donated to Christmas-a-Kid Program. The artist can also choose to donate their cut to the cause, and will be invited to help wrap the presents purchased for the adopted families.
