MADISONVILLE, La. / Sept. 22, 2021 — Local art and friendly barks recently took over Coleman Avenue in Waveland, Mississippi at the first-ever White Linen on Coleman event sponsored by Weichert, Realtors® – Loescher Properties. The event raised over $7,000 to benefit Friends of the Animal Shelter of Hancock County and was organized by agent Mandy Somerhalder.
The event welcomed over 25 artist vendors from the Gulf Coast area who put their work on display. Studio Waveland + Gallery also held open viewings of its current exhibitions for attendees of the event.
A portion of the proceeds from the artwork sold, reserved tables that were purchased for the exhibitions and the event’s silent auction were donated to Friends of the Animal Shelter of Hancock County’s rescue transport program, which is an animal rescue effort coordinated with the Mississippi Animal Project and partners in the Northeast.
Friends of the Animal Shelter of Hancock County supports shelters in the area and helps improve the general health and welfare of animals. Somerhalder is a board member and has spearheaded many initiatives to support the organization, including the White Linen on Coleman event.
“We are extremely proud of Mandy for all the great work she has done to support Friends of the Animal Shelter over the years,” said Charles Loescher, broker/owner of Weichert, Realtors® – Loescher Properties. “This event was an amazing success and we are very grateful to Mandy, our team and our community for helping truly make a difference for animals in need.”
