No doubt, this Art Show was my proudest moment to be a part of Philanthro in Seattle.
In total, we raised $1039.53 for Lifelong AIDS Alliance! Also we had 177 people in attendance, making it our second largest event yet. This was on a Wednesday night no less :)
If you weren’t there, check out the event photos and the photos of the art on Facebook. With art all along Vermillion’s walls, a packed venue from start to finish and performances throughout the night, it was our most fun, lively and meaningful event yet.
Big thanks to everyone who donated art, volunteered to perform and those who took part in the auction. You made a huge difference to Lifelong, Philanthro and to everyone who took part in the event.
I knew we were taking a risk by leaving up the content of our event up to Seattle, but it was completely unfounded.
Special thanks to Cathy McCartin for telling us her story of how Lifelong helped her during a tough time in her life, as well as Vermillion for hosting the event. We could not have asked for a more amazing lineup of artists and venue.
Want to be a part of this? Join us at the AIDS Walk and then at Grim’s for the after party.
THANKS AGAIN TO ALL OUR ARTISTS AND SPONSORS
