Thanks to all of you who came out for the inaugural Art for a Cause event benefiting The Patchwork School in Louisville. We had a fabulous time on Friday evening at the art opening, graced with the operatic music of Sarah McCurdy, Blue Grass and violin. Saturday morning started off with a bang as we all gathered outside for The Patchwork School's ribbon cutting. The children we especially excited about their new school and the amazing backyard/playground that many hands labored to create this summer.
Overall, the event raised $1800+ for the school.Â Artists donated 50% of their sales and the raffle money went towards paying for expenses of putting on the event.
As a group, AFAC is thrilled that the idea of supporting non-profits and artists simultaneously was a hit. We plan to do this again, so stay tuned.
