St. Vincent de Paul NKY Creative Compassion fundraiser for March 31st at the Drees Pavilion


St. Vincent de Paul Northern Kentucky (SVdPNKY) is hosting its second art event featuring works by local students and professional artists created from one-of-a-kind finds found at thrift stores.

The event, scheduled for Thursday, March 31 from 6pm to 9pm at the Drees Pavilion in Devou Park, is called Creative Compassion: A Night of Art for Our Neighbors in Need. Ten artworks will be selected by a jury of professional artists and auctioned at the live event.

As part of the event, SVdPNKY will draw the winning raffle ticket for their Blessings for Bourbon raffle. The drawing offers a chance to win one of three groups of different bourbons, with the grand prize being a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle (15 Year Old), Weller (12 Year Old), Weller Single Barrel-Orange Label, Weller Antique 107, Weller Special Reserve, Kentucky Owl and widow Jane (age 13)

Proceeds from the event and raffle will support SVdPNKY’s mission of providing emergency relief to neighbors struggling to make ends meet. Last year, SVdPNKY provided $4.2 million worth of emergency financial assistance, food and other basic needs to the community.

“We are grateful to our sponsors, our volunteers and the talented artists who make this event possible,” said Karen Zengel, SVdPNKY General Manager. “Creative Compassion offers St. Vincent de Paul a unique opportunity to raise awareness of poverty in our community and raise critical funds that will allow us to continue to serve those in need.”
