Art to Remember: Art to Remember (ATR) is a PTL fundraiser that transfers children’s original artwork into high quality keepsakes that families will cherish forever. Kids are proud to see their works of art showcased on our products, especially when given as gifts to family and friends. ATR is a safe fundraiser, in that it keeps students safe by eliminating door-to-door sales. Last year, Art to Remember raised $1400 in profit for St. John, simply through our in-house sales. Art to Remember is always done prior to Christmas…just in time for those special, personalized gifts your family will love!
