The Alabama Society of CPAs Birmingham Young CPA Chapter will present The Exceptional Foundation Art Show on Thursday, September 20 from 6 to 9 p.m at The Exceptional Foundation in Homewood.
The Exceptional Foundation is a non-profit organization where mentally challenged individuals are given the chance to engage in social and recreational activities once they reach age 21 and are no longer able to interact with others within a school system. The Exceptional Foundation also provides activities for school-age individuals during after school and summer hours.
The Exceptional Foundation Art show features art created by participants in the program. The proceeds of the art show will go towards participants’ program fees, which will make the program more affordable for families.
There will be music, wine and beer and a variety of food donated from local restaurants. There will also be a silent auction, which will include Exceptional Foundation artwork, local artists’ work, items donated by local businesses and several unusual “experience opportunities.”
Tickets are $35 and may be purchased online. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www.exceptionalfoundation.org.
