Thanks for helping support a great cause!

The Sacramento Mid-Century Modern Home Tour is proud to support our neighbors at the Short Center South. We were able to donate a $3,000 from this year's tour and received a really nice handmade card.

The Short Center South is a day program that serves adults with developmental disabilities. The Center offers classes in a studio setting, taught by artists working in their own disciplines. Classes include drawing, painting, ceramics, mosaics, photography, music, dance, theatre, textiles, crafts, sign language, reading, computers, physical education/exercise and classes that further social skills and personal growth.

If you haven't visited their studios and seen their artwork, check them out. You probably have already seen their work around town; they recently completed a public mural that is displayed on Franklin Boulevard. For more information about their work, see their website, Facebook and Twitter pages.

Many thanks to all of you who participated and contributed.
