The grassroots Aptos organization Neighbors Organized to Protect our Community (NOPOC) is working to raise funds to support their fight against PG&E’s plans to install a series of massive steel power poles through one of the most scenic areas of Santa Cruz County. As part of that effort, they are having a drawing for a stunning piece of original art: an illustration of a Saw-Whet owl.
Any contribution of $25 or more gets you an entry in the drawing; each multiple of $25 gets you an additional entry (e.g. $100 gets you 4 entries). You can donate on-line via PayPal or drop a check in their mail. Click here for more information on the drawing.
NOPOC is very transparent about where the money goes, they have built a web page for that too. Their goal is to raise $45,000 by February 2015. If you’re interested in help preserve a beautiful slice of Aptos for future generations and appreciate fine art, consider making a donation today.
