The merge charity auction will donate 100% of all proceeds to the Create Now organization.
Create Now gives youth opportunities to find their voices through arts mentoring and education. Serving children ages 2-21 who have been abused, neglected, homeless, domestic violence victims, incarcerated, etc. by matching them with artists, writers, musicians, actors, dancers and others, including mentors who teach life skills. Create Now provides training and materials to implement therapeutic programs in music, writing, visual arts, performing arts, fashion and digital media at 100+ partner agencies, like shelters and group homes. While Create Now focuses on using arts education as an intervention tool for vulnerable youth, their programs help prevent cycles of abuse, homelessness and violence. Each year, they bring thousands of these "forgotten children" who have fallen through the cracks to concerts, plays and other cultural events at premiere venues in the region.
The following artwork that will be available during the event and you can feel great knowing your purchase will not only grace your home, it will help Create Now to continue it's important work. Art with humanity.
