First Baptist Church Shutter Project
Last summer, the First Baptist Church of Westwood replaced the aging wooden shutters on its historic meetinghouse. Rather than throwing away the shutters that were still intact, the church invited artists to take a shutter and decorate it in any manner they chose.
These decorated shutters, pictured below, will be auctioned off in a silent auction during the month of October. Bidding opens at 12:01 am on October 1, and closes at 11:59 pm on October 31. People can submit their bid(s) through the bidding form. Bids will be updated no less than once a day.
After the bidding closes on October 31, the shutters will be awarded to the highest bidders. The proceeds for each shutter will be distributed with half of the highest bid going to the charity chosen by the artist and half going to the charity selected by First Baptist, The Greater Boston Food Bank. In early November, once payment has been received from the winning bidders, the church will arrange for them to pick up their shutters and will publicize the outcome of this event.
If you wish to make a donation to one of the charities, but don't want to make a bid, please mail your donation to the church, indicating the charity on the memo line. Click on a charity name to learn more about the work of the charity.

Bidding has now closed. Thank you for participating in our shutter project. High bidders will be notified by email on Sunday, November 1
