The Hellís Belles are celebrating their sixth year of hosting their Pinewood Derby, we want to make this yearís event the biggest success yet! We are currently accepting artist donations for entry in the silent auction. No matter what your usual style, this is your chance to get down with classic car culture. This means pinups, tattoos, tikis, pin striping, hot rods, and most importantly: vintage. Anything and everything retro will fly, so take a stroll back to the 40s, 50s and 60s for inspiration. All proceeds from the auction will go to charity.
You can also race your own custom Pinewood Derby car on the track or show off an art car! Prizes awarded for both RACE car and SHOW car categories. All art pieces donated for auction must be ready for hanging, so please contact Hellís Belles in advance for large pieces (over 3.5′ square) or if special consideration is needed for display. Submitted artwork should include your name, contact information, and title on the back. Every medium is welcome, as past auctions have included watercolors, photographs, giclee prints, oil paintings, woodblock prints, t-shirts, pinstriped purses, customized Chuck Taylors and more. Artists are welcome to retrieve any artwork that does not sell within one week of the event.
