Reinventing the old into works of art

7&4 sits down with Lilly Nowicki from Goodwill to find out how you can express your artistic side for a great cause.

You can put your artistic skills to use all while helping out a good cause for Goodwill's annual Reinvention Convention.

Goodwill Industries of Northern Michigan is asking for artists who can reuse, recreate and reinvent anything found at the Goodwill store into artistic masterpieces.

You have until February 1 to register for the convention and you can do that at the Traverse City Goodwill Store,

in Traverse City. It only costs $20 to register and once you do you will get $30 in Goodwill Bucks to use at the Traverse City store.
