This Saturday, April 30th 2016, Kannapolis Arts Volunteer Bailey Wingler will reveal the works of 12 different artists across North Carolina.  These paintings, which were created as part of the Healing Hearts with Healing Art facebook campaign, will soon adorn the walls of the Holly Haven Family Care Residence in Winston-Salem.  Wingler, along with her long time client Jennifer Alford, provided canvases to area artists who then painted bright and joyful pieces in hopes of bringing joy to the Holly Haven residents who are battling advanced stages of HIV disease.  Saturday will mark the finale to the Dining with Friends annual fundraiser which supports Aids Care Services.  To celebrate, ACS will host a night of dancing, drinks and desserts provided by the famous Dewey’s Bakery of Winston-Salem.  This event, called the Dewey’s Dessert Finale will take place in the Millennium Center in Winston-Salem and begins at 8pm.  More information regarding this event can be found HERE.
