On Sunday September 25, Tootsie is hosting the Best Foot Forward, exhibition and auction, developed in order to build a legacy for former artist Kim Nelson.

Kim founded YASSarts 20 years ago to promote the art and culture of the Yass Valley, and was instrumental in developing Yass as a flourishing Arts Community.

The money will most likely go towards ensuring the labyrinth at Cooma Cottage becomes a permanent installation in memory of Kim, and also an annual cash award for promising young artists at Yass High.

The auction will commence at 4pm on Sunday and Tootsie will trade as normal from 9.30am – 3.30pm and there will be live music throughout the day.
