A local potter is holding a fundraising show and sale to benefit the Cammy LaFleur Street Nurse Outreach Program.

April Sheehan’s works will be featured on Saturday, Nov. 21 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. at a private residence located at 1604 30th Ave., in Vernon.

“All items are handmade of original design with many one-of-a-kind pieces,” said Sheehan.

“The functional ware (mugs, bowls, plates) are food safe, dishwasher safe, microwave safe, as well as oven and freezer safe. Most of the pottery is wheel thrown, but some hand-built items are available as well.”

A percentage of all sales plus all profits will be donated to Sheehan’s charity of choice, the Cammy LaFleur Street Nurse Outreach Program, which is administered by the North Okanagan Youth and Family Services Society.

Donations to the program will also be accepted, with tax receipts issued.
