The Westra Bye Memorial Art Foundation is hosting its annual Art & Soul event at Porto Bello on Nov. 5. 

The foundation was established as a nonprofit organization in 2019, and honors the memory of Donna Westra and Robin Bye. 

The foundation offers financial support to young artists throughout Grand Haven Area Public Schools. 

Tickets are available for purchase on the Westra Bye Art Foundations website for $25 or are available at the door of Porto Bello for $30. Tickets will be available for pick-up at the event.

The event will take place from 7:00 to 11:00 PM, with a silent auction, music by Soul’d Out, a wine auction, hors d’oeuvres, and a cash bar. 

All proceeds made from the event will go to the Grand Haven Area Public Schools Visual Arts Scholarships.
