The Golden Ears Gogos are taking part in the Art From the Attic sale on Oct. 10 to raise funds for African grandmothers raising AIDS-orphaned  children.

As part of the Greater Van Gogos, the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows grandmothers are working with groups from Burnaby, Coquitlam and New West to stage this event. They have over 1,500 pieces of art donated – originals, prints, photographs and posters. Some are signed by internationally known artists such as Calvin Hunt and Robert Bateman, and others are by local artists such as Vancouver photographer Elaine Forsey and Vancouver Island painter Jan Smart.

All proceeds will go to the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign, Stephen Lewis Foundation, which supports women raising a generation of children orphaned by the AIDS pandemic in Africa.

• Art From the Attic happens on Oct. 10, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Scandinavian Centre in Burnaby, 6540 Thomas St. Admission is free.
