The fundraiser, sponsored by the Pinedale High School chapter of the National Art Honor Society and PHS art teacher Katie Facklam’s ceramics class, raised money for the Pinedale Angel Wreath program through the sale of student-made artwork. The students stepped up to the plate, and between the silent and live auctions and a soup dinner, collected more than $7,500 to fulfill Christmas wish lists for community members, said Facklam. ‘I’m so proud of my kiddos – their hearts are so beautiful,’ Facklam added.
