Last year the charity art auction at Flying M Coffeehouse raised over $30,000 to benefit people living with HIV/AIDS in the Treasure Valley, and hundreds of local artists are making it happen again this year.  You've got four days left to bid!

The Safety Net for AIDS Program (SNAP) offers financial help for those with HIV/AIDS in the Treasure Valley, and the art auction at the Flying M Coffeehouse raises a ton of money every year to help the cause.  Boise Weekly said the coffeehouse has raised a half-million dollars for SNAP over the years.

The  27th Annual Valentine for AIDS art benefit show features over 250 local artists this year who have donated pieces of art that have been on display at Flying M Coffeehouse in Downtown Boise since February 6th, and they'll be on display until 4 pm this Sunday, February 16th.  It's a silent auction, so you can have a cup of coffee, browse through the art on the walls, hang out for a while, and place a silent bid before you go.

SNAP provides assistance in housing, utility bills, groceries, and medical insurance payments for those in the Treasure Valley with HIV/AIDS.

Flying M Coffeehouse is at 500 West Idaho in Downtown Boise.  They'll let you know next week if you have the winning bid.  Good luck!
