ArtAID 17 – Sideshow Sets New Record!

ArtAID17 set new recordsThanks to everyone who helped make ArtAID 17-Sideshow a huge success.  The biggest year in the history of ArtAID, we helped raise an amazing $115,000 for Positive Directions through ticket sales, silent and live art auctions, and the pre-event Cocktail Party. This incredible 25 percent increase over last year’s event will help Positive Directions with the resources they need to continue to provide quality support, housing, and meal services to their growing client base of people living in our community with HIV and AIDS.

Our staff, sponsors, art contributors, guest artists, dancers, and models did an incredible job entertaining a nearly sold out audience at the Cotillion on October 9th. If you missed this year’s event, stop by the salon and see the video of our breathtaking fashion show for yourself. 

 Join the ArtAID Facebook group to stay up on what we have planned for next year’s show. Mark your calendar for Saturday, October 8, 2010 for ArtAID 18!
