Locally owned Sweets So Geek announced today that it will be hosting a charity art show to assist in paying medical bills for local business owner Lindsey Hively, who was diagnosed with cancer last year. On March 14th, Pi Day, Sweets So Geek will be displaying and auctioning pie pans that were passed out to area artists with the instructions to “make art.” This art will both be a celebration of local art, a quirky fun celebration of Pi Day, and once sold, will benefit a local business owner who has shown remarkable dignity and grace while dealing with cancer.
The show will begin at 6:00 pm on Saturday, March 14th and all art will be sold via silent auction, which will end at 9:00 pm. Purchased art can be picked up immediately following, or no later than 3/21. All proceeds of art sales will go directly to Lindsey Hively to pay for expenses from medical treatment and transportation to and from doctors. The entire community is invited to come out, bid on one of a kind art, and enjoy a fun and different event. If unable to make it to the event, there is also a GoFundMe campaign in place to allow for donations. This page can be accessed at http://www.gofundme.com/LindseyHivelyPiDay.
In conjunction with the art show, Sweets So Geek will also be having Pi Day contests, awarding the customer who can recite Pi to the furthest decimal with a full pie and their name engraved in a trophy pie pan to be displayed permanently at the store. All desserts will be Pi(e) themed for the day as well.
