AGC Fundraising - the BUTTON JAR ??!!

Recently a very dear friend of the AGC, Avron Shore, passed away. Avron was a unique and generous individual, who volunteered for a number of organizations in the community. Before he died, he donated a huge bottle filled with a variety of buttons to the Artists' Garden. We've decided to dedicate the use of Avron's gift to admirably patient, Admin. Assistant, Charlotte, sat down and counted every button in the jar. Now we know how many buttons there are! Our visitors can guess the number of buttons and participate in a 50/50 contest. There are only several more weeks to participate in this summer's A. Shore Button Jar Contest. Be sure to enter your guesses, get a chance to win 50% of the entry fees collected, and best of all, help us make a donation to one of Avron's favourite charities.
