NIAGARA FALLS – The Niagara Arts and Cultural Center, Pine Avenue and Portage Road, will offer a fund-raising basket raffle and art auction from 4 to 7 p.m. Sunday.

About 200 art items, including paintings, prints, photos and sculptures, donated by professional artists, will be up for bids. Also, baskets filled with items donated by area businesses will be raffled.

NACC officials said they hope the proceeds will help offset the City Council’s $30,000 budget cut for the center and its refusal to match a $15,000 grant offered by the John R. Oishei Foundation.
