To the editor:

We at St. Vincent's Center have many people to thank for making our recent art festival an outstanding success. We would like to start by thanking the Deseret News for the fine publicity you gave us. We also are very grateful to Gene Pack of KUED for his interest and for the interview he had with us.Many thanks are due to the interested people who attended our festival, particularly those who purchased art. Above all, we thank our participating artists for the fine works of art they exhibited and their enthusiastic cooperation which made the festival not only a success but a lot of fun to boot.

The money we were able to raise will be a big help to us in fostering our work among the homeless.
