Annual Art Dash a big success for Franciscan Spirituality Center

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – 87 pieces of art from area artists and photographers have found a new home after being grabbed by dashers Thursday night.

It was the 5th annual Art Dash event, supporting the Franciscan Spirituality Center in La Crosse.

Ticket-holders waited for their number to be called so they could “dash” up to the displays and claim a piece.

The money raised goes directly to the Center’s ministries and programs.

“It helps us to keep costs low and accessible to anyone that wants to come to the Spirituality Center,” said Director of the Franciscan Spirituality Center Jean Pagliaro.

Organizers say the event has grown in popularity so much over the years, they’re always asked about the next Art Dash.

The Center raised about $15,000 for its programs.
