Art fundraising event at Cheeky Monkey Toys

An art fundraiser to benefit the Ravenswood Education Foundation will be held Saturday and Sunday, March 3 and 4, at Cheeky Monkey Toys, 640 Santa Cruz Ave. in Menlo Park.

Artist Florence de Bretagne will be showing some of her newest paintings (New Mexico landscapes and abstract paintings) and will also paint with the kids who visit the store.

Ms. de Bretagne was one of 10 French artists selected to represent France at the European contemporary Art Fair in 2005. Now living in Palo Alto, she will donate 20 percent of the proceeds from sale of her paintings at Cheeky Monkey to the Ravenswood Education Foundation.

Cheeky Monkey will donate 10 percent of its weekend sales to the Ravenswood Education Foundation, which helps support programs for more than 3,600 children in the seven East Palo Alto and eastern Menlo Park schools.

Ms. de Bretagne will be at Cheeky Monkey from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 2 to 5 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday. For more information, call 328-7975.
