Works of Heart Valentine Auction
The 2015 Works of Heart valentine auction raised over $90,000 for the Memphis Child Advocacy Center! That goes a long way toward helping victimized and vulnerable children find safety, healing, and justice!
This year's Works of Heart valentine auction at the Memphis College of Art on Saturday, February 7, 2015 was a great party! Hundreds of attendees bid on over 100 incredible works of art created by leading regional artists like John McIntire, Tootsie Bell, John Robinette, George Hunt, and Maritza Davila.
Joe Birch from WMC
served as emcee. Guests enjoyed complimentary appetizers, wine, and beer—and those who purchased tickets to our Big Heart Lounge were treated to a beautiful lounge designed by Stash Home
, a personal work of art designed by a Works of Art artist, a free Works of Heart tee, and other special perks.

Works of Heart is a success every year because of the generous support of people like you: our guests, our committed volunteers, and our gracious supporters--not to mention the artists whose time and creativity result in work that ranges from beautiful to thought-provoking. Our hardworking committee, under the leadership of Murray Riss and Sheryl Bowen, contribute the details that make the event unique. Works of Heart is just another example of ways people like you pull together to give back and help victims become children again.
