Lo­cal artists are do­nat­ing their work to the cause cel­e­brated by the A Day on the Bridge event – the Cootes to Es­carp­ment EcoPark Sys­tem.

More than 20 paint­ings will be up for silent auc­tion with pre­views and bid­ding be­gin­ning June 1, 7 to 9 p.m.; June 2 and 3, 12 to 7 p.m. at 370 Wil­son St. E., An­caster (the plaza hous­ing Cavallo Nero restau­rant).

Bid­ding will con­tinue from noon to 10 p.m. on Sun­day, June 11, dur­ing the A Day on the Bridge event, which will see the McQuesten High Level Bridge closed to ve­hi­cle traf­fic and be­come the site of mu­sic, theatre, danc­ing and more, cul­mi­nat­ing in a fundrais­ing gourmet din­ner.

Pro­ceeds from the silent auc­tion will go to raise funds to pur­chase land that will be­come part of the Cootes to Es­carp­ment EcoPark Sys­tem, a pro­tected, per­ma­nent and con­nected nat­u­ral land sanc­tu­ary from the har­bour to the es­carp­ment.
