Silent Auction Benefits Charities

A silent auction of Pat Woodside’s original art will take place on Sunday, February 12, from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Great Hall at Middleham & St. Peters Parish, 10210 H.G. Truman Road, Lusby, Maryland. The sale is open to the public and all proceeds will be given to Calvert County Hospice, Haiti School Nurse Project, Patuxent Habitat for Humanity and SMILE Ecumenical Ministries. Buyers may designate which charity their purchase will benefit

Pat Woodside, who passed away December 8, 2011, will be remembered with great affection for her quiet, cheerful years of devotion to her church and the community.  A resident of Asbury~Solomons Island since 1998, Pat moved here from Houston to be closer to her children following her husband’s death.  Among many charitable endeavors, Pat found great joy working with SMILE, Habitat for Humanity, Calvert County Hospice and Middleham & St. Peters Parish.  Pat was always ready to lend a helping hand for a good cause.  Her many dear friends recognized her diligence and patience, but never knew she was a gifted artist.

Pat’s last great gift to her family and friends is a collection of approximately 100 pieces of her beautiful art work, which will be sold to benefit four of her favorite charities.  She used water color, pen and ink, and acrylic, and painted landscapes, florals, still life, and nautical subjects in a variety of styles including impressionist, abstract and folk art.  Some of the paintings are framed, most are not.
