Journalism students hold third annual photography exhibit and silent auction

2013-03-26

CORNWALL – Students in St. Lawrence College’s Journalism program are holding their third annual photography exhibit and silent auction from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm on Wednesday, March 27, 2013. Staff, students, and members of the community are invited to the exhibit and silent auction, which will take place inside the main entrance to Moulinette Hall, located on St. Lawrence College’s Cornwall campus.

 

“The exhibit features the photographic work of first and second-year students in the Journalism program,” said Terry Tinkess, coordinator of the Journalism program. “The exhibit is not only about the  students sharing their work and talent with the College community, but it is also about the students having an opportunity to give back to the community they live and study in.”

 

The proceeds from the silent auction will benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Cornwall/SDG, which provides a safe, supportive place where children and youth can experience new opportunities, overcome barriers, build positive relationships and develop confidence and skills for life.

 

Last year, the students raised $425 through the silent auction, which was donated to the Cornwall Children’s Treatment Centre. In 2011, the students raised $325 for The Max Keeping Foundation.
