Created as a pathway to help the community, the Saint James Court Charitable Foundation assists charities in the Louisville area by providing an outlet to raise money. Each year, the foundation opens up their scenic neighborhood and asks neighbors to come out in support of various worthy causes, and last year they successfully raised $25,000 for The Cabbage Patch Settlement House, Inc.
This year’s Saint James Court Art Show Gala, held Saturday, Sept. 29, will again benefit the nonprofit organization which empowers at-risk children, youth and their families. The black-tie fundraiser, held the weekend preceding the Saint James Court Art Show, will honor Walter and Cathy Shannon, who founded E&S Gallery. The couple have done a magnificent job of renovating an amazing space in West Louisville and have helped to further the revitalization in that area. Rollia Knight will also be honored, a long-time supporter, great neighbor and one of the Court’s biggest fans who has dedicated years to the art show.
In addition, the winner of the Art Show Poster Contest will be presented during the elegant evening. All proceeds from the gala event will benefit The Cabbage Patch. The 100-year beacon of change has made a difference in thousands of lives in Louisville through arts and culture, education and social change, and the Saint James Court Charitable Foundation is proud to support them for another year.
This year’s committee members are Don Keeling, Margue Esrock, Bob Willis, Angela Hagan, Jeff Perry, Sandy Richardson, Jim Clayton and Charissa Acree.
