BOONE – The Boone-based Community Care Clinic is in the middle of a busy season with its first Barn Raising event in September, an upcoming fundraising event and art donations to the clinic.
The CCC’s inaugural Barn Raising “Neighbors Helping Neighbors” event we held in September, which clinic Executive Director Lisa Bottomley recently announced raised over $21,000.
The event will return on Sept. 13, 2019, to the Apple Barn in Valle Crucis.
The offices at CCC were recently spruced up by various art donations. Several pieces were donated by the Lois Harrill Senior Center art class.
“The paintings hang in the lobby of the clinic, offering patients and visitors pieces of vivid color and beautiful scenery through watercolor and oil paintings,” Bottomley said.
In addition, local artist Marion Cloaninger, who Bottomley noted is a longtime supporter of the clinic, donated one of her complete collections to the clinic, which hangs in the main patient area.
“She is best known for her colorful acrylic mixed media paintings,” Bottomley said. “Her process involves creating layers, applied in non-traditional ways, using pourings, hand-painted papers, monoprints and found collage elements.”
The clinic is also the Lost for a Cause charity of the month for November at Lost Province in Boone. Nov. 13 will see an auction, music and 10 percent of sales going to benefit the clinic, Bottomley said.
