BEST Kids is a community-based, one-on-one mentoring organization that empowers youth in the Washington, DC foster care system (ages 6-21) by helping them cultivate positive relationships with caring, consistent mentors.
Art is a catalyst for positive change. Art heals. It stirs the soul. Art fires up the imagination and allows us to reach beyond our mental limits to imagine a better tomorrow. BEST Kids, Inc. will showcase and auction off a wonderful collection of art, including art created by our very own mentees, all to benefit our mentoring programs for Washington, DC’s foster youth.
Bid for a chance to win a wide variety of auction items at this year’s Silent Auction. There is something for everyone and you can even participate online. New items will be added weekly, so make sure to check back frequently.
The ART of the Matter is not just a fundraising event for BEST Kids, but it is a celebration of art that involves our entire BEST Kids family. Several of our mentees and their mentors are participating in a variety of workshops related to the arts including painting, music lessons, and photography in preparation for this celebration.
