ALC Fund Raiser : Art Auction & Raffle

This has been the most interesting, productive & stressful 3 months I have been through in a very long time but setting up this silent art auction definitely takes the cake! After a few venue changes, about 150 Emails sent and a ton of phone calls I was finally able to get this together.

I'm holding a Silent auction and Raffle for my final fundraiser for the AIDS/LifeCycle 9. I wanted to put something together that would reach out to all Coachella Valley residents, not just those who are affected by HIV & AIDS. What better way that art ?

I have collected artworks from some of the best up and coming artist from all over the Coachella Valley and a few from the bay area to help me reach my fund raising goal. I have also collected various gift cards and services from local businesses and restaurants for a $10 raffle.

There is a bit more info that I can't post just yet, so you'll just have to wait and see !
