As this year’s President of the Mooresville Lake Norman Exchange Club, I can personally tell you that not only is this a top quality juried art show featuring some of the best in North Carolina, but that all of the proceeds from this event will go to help fight child abuse in Mooresville and Iredell County. Last year 32 children in North Carolina died at the hands of a parent or caregiver. The dedicated team of counselors at our SCAN (Stop Child Abuse Now)Child and Parenting Centers in Stateville and now Mooresville teach parenting classes, provide counseling and have a number of programs working in conjunction with the Department of Social Services to protect our children. The Cotton Ketchie Arts Festival is our major annual fundraiser for the SCAN organization. As the Treasurer of the Board of SCAN I can tell you that we need every penny to help us provide the much needed services we do.

Tickets for both raffles are available at the Landmark Gallery on Main Street in Downtown Mooresville and at several other locations around town.

The Play House is currently on display in front of WalMart in Mooresville but will be moved to other locations.

Feel free to email me for more information, tickets or the most recent location of the Play House!
