WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Some people will be playing cards for a good cause this weekend during the Alice in Wonderland Cards of heART event.

Local artists created an original piece of art that depicts their selected card whether it be a 9 of hearts, king of diamonds, or an ace of spades.  The paintings were photographed and used to create the "Cards of heART" card deck and a limited edition poster.

The original works will be sold to the highest bidder at an auction Saturday at the New Hanover County Arboretum.  Proceeds will benefit the First in Families of SE NC.

People are encouraged to dress up as an Alice in Wonderland character.  WECT's Genevieve Barker has the honor of being Alice and auctioneer.
