Local artist Marcia Gawecki, 57, has a congenital prolapsed mitral valve; her father died at 53 of a stroke. Her surgery will be soon. Lynnda Hart and Beth Severance are holding a “Have a Heart” fundraiser from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Saturday, May 12, at the Rainbow Inn.

Marcia’s artwork, as well as other artists’ work, are up for auction. Also for raffle are two tickets to Jazz in the Pines, two tickets to the Idyllwild Area Historical Society Home Tour, two tickets to Idyllwild’s Got Talent and two tickets to the Art Alliance of Idyllwild Art Walk and Wine Walk, as well as other donations.

Musicians also will perform.

Marcia’s biggest concern is not being able to work for two to six months after the surgery. For more information, contact Beth at dgnlif@yahoo.com or text her (no calls) at 619-972-9227.
