Remember the Artist Challenge back in June? Well three months later on Sept. 15, Paint Love hosted another awesome event to add to the books! The 2018 Art Auction and Fundraiser was proof that Paint Love is greatly fulfilling its mission in the community with every passing day.
The artwork completed by the wonderful six artists in our Artist Challenge was up for auction- which the guests happily indulged. Our partner organization (Camp Peace), artists and Title I school partner (Clarkdale Elementary School) were recognized and awarded our first Impact Awards, appreciating them for their amazing efforts and teamwork with serving our youth this year! The guests were supportive and generous in donations supporting the continuation in funding more Paint Love programs in the future.
Last but definitely not least, we would like to send a HUGE thank you to our friends at Color Wheel Studio for allowing us to host this event in their venue!!! Thank you to our donors and guests as well! We truly couldn’t have done this without you. In honor of our famous social handle and hashtag, Go Paint Love!
See you all next year!
[UPDATE]: We are humbly excited to announce that we have raised over $10,000 toward our programming! Great thanks to all of our donors, supporters, and sponsors for bringing this goal to past! We hope to continue with you all on the Paint Love mission.
