Second Chances Foundation, a nonprofit founded in 2009 to help graduates of alcohol- and drug-treatment programs with sober living and transitional housing, invites guests to an evening of contemporary art and delectable dishes. Patrons can march into bidding wars over pieces from acclaimed local artists, such as painter Carol Buchman, wax-encaustic artist Mary Long-Postal, sculpture and multimedia experimentalist Roy Tamboli, and macaroni-necklace crafter Cheese Cheeseman. In addition to plentiful pours of wine and beer, elegantly plated hors d’oeuvres from Elegant Farmer sate palates with a mix of classic Southern culinary delights. All proceeds from the auction benefit the continuing mission of the Second Chances Foundation.
