“Transformed Treasures” event celebrates women in recovery at The Salvation Army

Submitted by on May 3, 2013 – No Comment

The Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center in San Francisco recently put out a call for local artists to participate in their Transformed Treasures event!

Artist Robert Gordon's store selections

Artists of all types were invited to make over items found at our Family Stores to be auctioned off at a luncheon event on Saturday, May 4.

According to event organizer Cindy Engler, “It will take an artist’s eye, a lot of talent and some elbow grease to find
an item and transform it into an individual work of art that is irresistible to our bidders. The end results are a combination of creativity, flair and recycling at its best.”

Process raised at the luncheon event will benefit The Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center, Pinehurst Program for women in San Francisco.

Artist Robert Gordon's "Transformed Treasure"

Pinehurst is a 25 bed facility that is home for women participating in the Adult Rehabilitation Center programs. At Pinehurst, the residents receive no-fee substance abuse rehabilitation, counseling, work therapy and encouragement to develop the skills they need to live without drugs and alcohol.

The women who call Pinehurst home are the real transformed treasures!
