All Saints Anglican Church is hosting their second annual Spaghetti Dinner and Art Auction on Saturday, February 25. The fundraiser will go toward the continuing renovation of the church hall, an Agassiz historical building.

This year there will be several original pieces of art and attic treasures for auction.  As well, a handmade quilt, $300 pearl necklace, original painting and several other prizes will be raffled.

Fred Watson, a parishioner of All Saints, has donated two portraits from the 1700s. They were donated from his family estate and are of significant value. Canwest Art Services and Gallery of Harrison Hot Springs has appraised these paintings for the sale. All Saints invites everyone to join in this evening of fun and excitement.
