Cheers to Art!
What a great night! Our fourth annual Cheers to Art event, held on March 21, 2013, was our best ever!
With the help of our generous donors, sponsors and bidders,, we raised more than $40,000 for the Children's Garden! And we'd like to send out a big thank you to everyone who helped contribute to the event. Your generosity will help make a real difference in a child’s life.
Once the doors opened, we packed the house with more than 300 exuberant bidders. They were a happy bunch, probably because there was a wonderful selection of art up for grabs paired with just the right amount of Cheer! We had more than 150 items up for auction, including artwork from Europe, Asia and beyond! Judging by the end-of-night tally, nearly everyone found something exciting to bid on. All told, the auction raised more than $18,000. That’s a terrific turnout and a terrific number!
All proceeds will be used to aid in the continued growth of the Children's Garden and its programs, and as a direct result of the event,, we will be able to improve the experience and further develop hands-on programs for the Garden’s youngest patrons.
