A number of beautiful paintings will be up for auction for a great cause.

Mia's Children Foundation is hosting its second annual Art from the Heart: The Gypsy's Palette event.

The May 6 event will feature hors d'oeuvres, music, and auctions. It starts at 6:30 p.m. with a presentation scheduled for 7:30 p.m.

Mia's Children is a non-profit organization that brings food, education, shelter, health care, and Gospel to impoverished and orphaned children in Bucharest, Romania. The children involved in the organization, most of whom are of Roma descent, painted the artwork available.
