Food, art and charity will collide Tuesday at Flatbread Company in Paia. Leilani Farm Sanctuary in Haiku has been selected as the nonprofit organization of the month at the popular pizza restaurant, which means a portion of all pizza sales Tuesday night will be donated to the sanctuary.
During the fundraiser an information table will be on display with large, color pictures of the animals and literature about the farm and compassion toward animals. A silent auction will feature dozens of original watercolor and oil paintings by artist Carolyn Moline.
Leilani Farm Sanctuary is an volunteer-operated nonprofit organization created to provide shelter and care for abused and rescued animals, and humane education to the public. To learn more about Leilani Farm Sanctuary, visit www.leilanifarmsanctuary.org
