Inspire Your Heart with Art Auction — January, 2016

CityHeART hosted a live auction event to raise funds for its first Addiction in Long Beach project in spring, 2016. Approximately ten local artists donated close to 50 pieces of visual and written art.  The Brasslamp Bookbar and Lounge hosted the fundraising event, which was called Inspire Your Heart with Art.

The cohort of CityHeART-ists collaborating on this addiction project presented some of their initial work, which included a photo series by Karen Maia Sawyer that sold for $22.50 at the start of the auction.

Romeos ChocolatesThe Pie Bar and a few other local businesses and non-profits donated and sponsored the event.

The event raised nearly $500, and covered all costs of this first Addiction in Long Beach project.

To end the night, CityHeART’s Madison D’Ornellas performed an original song written for this quarter specifically.
