Second Lady Gisele Barreto Fetterman recognizes the value of the arts and humanities. She's identified a creative way to support non-profits throughout the commonwealth who have missions that align with her priorities. Since October 2020, Gisele has made five large-scale wall pieces inspired by friendship bracelets that she's donated to Pennsylvanian non-profits to auction or raffle to raise funds to support their operations.
"I loved looming friendship bracelets as a kid (and teen) and this is my grown-up version of that experience," says Gisele.
EAC would like to specifically thank Selena King for obtaining this donation from Gisele. Selena is a former Trustee of Erie Arts & Culture.
For every $5 you donate, you'll receive one raffle ticket to win original decorative art by Gisele. Your donation helps support Erie Arts & Culture and our 2nd annual Maker Market. The Maker Market will be held on Saturday, Nov 19 at FEED (1307 State Street) from 10 am - 3 pm.
We'll draw winners at 2 PM on Nov 19!
