Chalkfest for Charity is the coming together of art, charity and community! Local artists will be creating masterpieces on the sidewalks of Wrentham Village Premium Outlets, which will be sponsored by local businesses, organizations or individuals. All of the proceeds raised at this event will be donated to the Franklin Rotary Club. The event is scheduled for October 22 from 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM.

Wrentham Village Premium Outlets will be hosting their second annual Chalkfest for Charity on Sunday, October 22nd  (rain date of Sunday October 29.) This event is being held in partnership with the Frankly Rotary Club, who will use the proceeds raised at this event to help the Franklin Rotary  and associated charities and projects throughout the year, such as:

• Sending students to RYLA, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards. RYLA is a leadership program coordinated by Rotary Clubs around the globe. Each year, thousands of young people participate in this program. Young people are sponsored by Rotary Clubs to attend the event run by the club's district committee.
• Grants to High School Seniors
• Community outreach with local charities including the Franklin Food Pantry, YMCA, the Santa Foundation.
 

What is the Chalkfest for Charity? It is the coming together of art, charity and community! Local artists will be creating masterpieces on the sidewalks of Wrentham Village Premium Outlets, which will be sponsored by local businesses, organizations or individuals. All of the proceeds raised at this event will be donated to the Franklin Rotary Club. Artists will start their artwork at 11:00 am on the day of the event, and the official judging will begin at 2:00 pm – but watching the artists at work is half of the fun! The artwork will then be on display at the Wrentham Village Premium Outlets  as long as mother nature allows.

 

How is  money raised? Local businesses and generous individuals buy "squares." Each square is assigned to an artist.  The sponsor's names appear at the top of each artist’s drawing.
