The deadline has been extended a bit for artists to paint a homer for the annual Home Plate Heroes auction that benefits the Jim Elder Good Sport Fund. You've got until Sept. 3 to turn in your home-plate-shaped work that will be sold to benefit numerous non-profits (P.A.R.K., American Diabetes Summer Camp, Easter Seals, Hearts and Hooves ... ). The online auction begins Sept. 17 here and the live auction, at the Thea Foundation, 401 Main St., NLR, is Sept. 27.

Haven't gotten your wooden plate yet? E-mail Susan Elder, daughter of the famed Travelers' broadcaster and the creator of the fund and auction, at selder52@gmail.com.
