Memorial Art Event to Benefit Judge's Favorite Charities

Friends of Easton district magistrate Gay Elwell are organizing a "Bring Your Own Art" event  entitled "Can't Fill These Shoes" to commemorate her memory and raise funds to be donated to  causes she supported during her lifetime.

Anyone is welcome to participate either by decorating a pair of stiletto heels, or by donating a pair to be decorated. The artful pumps will then be auctioned at an event planned for Saturday, January 5, and the proceeds are to be donated to all or one of three of Elwell's favorite local charities--The Center for Animal Welfare, the Easton Public Library and The Sigal Museum.

While those that would like to participate are welcome to submit their creative footwear creations independently, there is also a stiletto-heel decorating party planned for Saturday, December 30, where volunteers can get together to embellish the fancy footwear.

Those that would like to donate a pair of heels, decorated or plain, can drop them off at Just Around the Corner, 5 North Bank St., Noble Arts Pianos and Institute of Music, 226 Bushkill St., or at Connexions, 213 Northampton St. during any of the business' regular hours.

Those that are decorating stilettos are asked to fill out a registration form and submit it with their creation by January 4.

Both the decorating party on Saturday, Dec. 30 and the art event, on Saturday, Jan. 5, will be held at 1 p.m. at Easton Yoga, located at 524 Northampton St., though attendees should enter the location from the back entrance on Pine Street.

Elwell, an Easton district judge since 1996 and former reporter for the Morning Call, died unexpectedly on Monday, Dec. 3, at the age of 54 in her home of natural causes.
