Animation and FX Art Charity Event
(by On September 23 and 24, 2001, from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., St. Hubert's Catholic Church in Chanhassen will be hosting The Hearts of Hope Foundation's Animation Art Charity Event to help abandoned and orphaned children in Romania.

At this event, which is free to the public, attendees will be able to purchase limited edition signed lithographs of the dinosaurs from the movie Jurassic Park III, and original animation art used to make movies such as Return to Oz, Pinocchio and The Real Ghostbusters, Flash Gordon, Alvin and the Chipmunks and many more. Prices will range from $50 for animation cells, to $80.00 for a set of nine lithographs of dinosaurs, representing more than a 40% discount from art gallery prices where these items sell for $100 - $400 each.

The proceeds from this event will help provide shelter, food and medical attention for children who stand a 1 in 2 chance of surviving to their 13th birthday.

"We are pleased to offer this original animation art to help raise funds for the abandoned children of Romania. The art was produced by talented animators in Hollywood and is all one-of-a-kind. They should bring a smile to every child," says Herman Rush, the ex-CEO of Columbia Pictures, who helped make this event possible.

St. Hubert's Catholic Church is located at 8201 Main Street in Chanhassen. For directions or to find out more about the event, please call The Hearts of Hope Foundation at 612-919-3570
