One of the most creative community outings of the year, Farragut Elementary’s Artworks! Extravaganza, will be staged Saturday from 11 to 4 on the school grounds.

As you can see from the expressions on the faces of Rachel Schinderman and Ellen Davidson, guests have a fun time in the photo booth, which returns this year, and roaming among the creative displays.

Ms. Schinderman and Ms. Davidson are co-chairs of the Artworks! Gala, a dressy evening-out affair that will be held next week, Saturday, April 18, at the Fresh Paint Gallery, Culver City.

On Saturday, the free program will include all-day attractions such as a live auction and a silent auction.

For 10 days beginning on Monday, there will be an online auction.

A year ago, items and services offered though the BiddingForGood.com site topped the 400 mark. The online promotion includes vacations, gift cards, art and more. It is a core part of  Farragut’s fundraising program for its arts and technology enhancements, the auction attracted 1,000 e-shoppers last year.
