Art Auction

Since 1999, children from around the world have been donating their art to be auctioned at the Annual For Kids' Sake Art Auction in Carbondale, IL to support orphans and students in Bangladesh.

Changes for the 2022 Art Auction

Thank you for supporting the Annual For Kids' Sake (FKS) Art Auction for the last 21 years. This event has evolved many times over the years, and next year is no exception.


Here's what you need to know about the 2022 FKS Art Show:​

  • You can buy art "off-the-wall" upon purchase instead of bidding

  • The Show will be May 4 - June 26, 2022 at Longbranch Café & Bakery

  • Enjoy an Artist Reception on May 21, 1pm-3pm at Longbranch in lieu of a large Closing Celebration


Proceeds from the show will support orphans and students in Bangladesh. Please let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to going into this next chapter with you.

Thank You - 2021 Art Auction Success!

Thank you for making the 21st Annual For Kids' Sake Art Auction a success! This is the first year that the Art Auction was entirely online from start to finish, and we frankly weren't sure how it would go.


We are delighted to report that between art sales and generous matching donations, over $18,500 was raised for the children in Bangladesh!


Thank you to all the local and international artists, matching sponsors, and supporters like you for coming together to celebrate the arts and provide life-saving services for kids in Bangladesh.
