Art for children in need!

Charity campaign Art For Children in Need 2016

More than 200 works of art from Bulgarian and foreign artists participate in the new session of the charity campaign Art for Children in Need, which St. St. Constantine and Helena Foundation makes for another year in order to support disadvantaged children and teenagers, as well as the ones, who are deprived of parental care or with special needs.

Each new campaign of the Foundation in support of children in need from Varna and the region, traditionally begins on 18th of October. This is the day when the Orthodox Church celebrates St. Luke, who is the patron of the artists.

The symbolic start of the Art for Children in Need at this year coincides with another cultural event in Varna, supported by the Foundation - the Svetlin Nenov’s exhibition Odesеa, with which the famous and beloved artist of Varna and a donator of the Foundation of many years will celebrate his 55th birthday.  The exhibition will be opened on the day of the author’s birthday October 19th and after its completion, all the pictures will be included in support of the charity campaign.

The aim of the initiative is through the sale of works of art to raise funds that are intended entirely for the children’s needs: their education, upbringing, personal growth and comfort, improvement of their environment of life. 

For a first time in 2016 a Foundation’s scholarship winner participates in the initiative for raising of funds for the children. This is the artist Verdjinia Stefany Doycheva, who after the implementation of the project for which she won a scholarship, donated her works for the benefit of the campaign.

In unison with the artistic direction of its business and the start of the campaign, the Foundation plans to announce the new session for collecting of projects on the scholarship program Arts 2016/2017, which will be realized with the support of one of the traditional partners of the Foundation - Quadrant Beverages JSC - the official bottler for Bulgaria of the products of PepsiCo (Pepsi, Mirinda, 7UP, Evervess, Gatorade) and one of the best-selling juices in Bulgaria PRISUN.

Anyone who wishes to participate in the charity campaign and trough the art to donate funds for the children in need, can examine the works that are exposed as a permanent exhibition in the art space of Azalia Hotel & SPA at St. St. Constantine and Helena Resort. The art works are published on the
