Last year’s The Art of the Turtle event raised over $13,000 for the KTTC! The event was a resounding success, and our volunteers have been hard at work getting ready for this year’s event. We are aniticipating about 60 original pieces of artwork including painting, jewellery, sculpture, photography, and more!

The silent auction is ongoing throughout the evening and the live auction begins at 9pm under the gavel of Keith Monk. All of the art pieces have been kindly donated by the many talented artists of the Kawarthas and beyond. Tickets are $20 for KTTC members, $30 for Non-Members, and all proceeds benefit the KTTC.
