Hope for Haiti hosted its second annual Art and Antique fundraiser at the Turbine Flats building near 22nd and Y streets Sunday.

There was food and entertainment, as well as a chance to purchase both antique and modern arts and crafts from numerous vendors across Lincoln.

"Finding something you can incorporate in your work, and also helping children in Haiti," Liz Shea-McCoy said. "It's a win, win."

"This is the culmination of about eight months worth of work that we've put together to organize this event for raising funds for an orphanage in Haiti," organizer Russ Meyer said.

Organizers said they plan to hold the event again next year. Proceeds will go to the Great Commission Alliance to help out orphanages in Haiti.
