Brooke Pottery is happy to sponsor artist and shop employee Grace McMullen in the Chalk for Charity art festival today in downtown Lakeland. Early this morning artists began transforming Lemon Street into an outdoor art exhibit using tempera paint and chalk. The monies raised from this year’s event will go to fund Lakeland Knights of Columbus Global Wheelchair Mission and The Lakeland Citizen’s Police Academy Alumni Association which supports police academy scholarships and projects of the Lakeland Police Department. The global Wheelchair Mission provides wheelchairs to those in need around the world and since 2003 over 20,000 wheelchairs have been donated. Stay tuned on facebook and twitter for more photos as the day progresses, or better yet, come downtown and see for yourself. It’s a gorgeous day!
