Bee’s Knees auction succeeds


By: Narges Taghavi, Feature Editor

The Bee’s Knees is a program set up by Youth and Family Services and is a nonprofit organization that helps young adults with special needs to gain entrepreneurial experiences and business skills.

The program visited Rose State College, and with the assistance of the Frances White Hughes Scholars, on Oct. 27 held an art show featuring three original works from the Bee’s Knees. A variety of prints sold for $5, and donations were appreciated.

The original Bee’s Knees works presented were:

  • “All Friends and Love” by Ashley Parker and Allie Jelinek: This painting contains vibrant and calming waves of color.
  • “SpongeBob, Pikachu, Some Angels, and Fish” by Chris Hicks: This painting is very fun and whimsical.
  • Electrical Disaster by Dave Blose: The watery blues contrast the red electrical fire to great effect.

The Hughes’ Scholars raised a total of $135 through the auction. The money will be put towards growing the Bee’s Knees program, purchasing new materials, and funding community activities.
