As of this year, Flying M Coffeehouse on Idaho Street has been fundraising to fight HIV and AIDS for a quarter century with its annual Valentines for AIDS silent auction, a love-themed event that offers up top-notch local art for a cause. Once again, dozens of Boise-based artists will bring their A game by donating sculptures, paintings, collages, textiles, jewelry and more to the coffee shop, which will put them on display for a ten-day silent auction. Proceeds—which in 2017 totalled $26,000—will benefit SNAP, an organization that assists those living with AIDS and HIV, and in the meantime the quirky, heart-covered art pieces will fill Flying M with hopeful shades of pink and red. So stop by, grab a cup of joe and check out the work. You might just find something to love.
