Artists for Animal Causes silent auction to benefit HubCats Chelsea will be held on Thursday August 17 at 80 Border Street, East Boston, third floor, studio 307, from 7:30 to 8:30PM on Thursday, August 17th, in conjunction with the closing reception for the Friends show at Atlantic Works Gallery down the hall.
Artists for Animal Causes is a group of artists working to improve the well-being of pets, farm animals and wildlife in The New England area. To date, we are focused on auctions of work primarily donated by New England artists for fundraisers to support organizations with missions concerning animal welfare.
Artists for Animal Causes will be holding this silent auction to benefit Chelsea Hub Cats, a non-profit organization that rescues, spays or neuters and find homes for cats roaming in the neighborhoods of Chelsea and surrounding areas. They do amazing work with a very limited budget and some tireless volunteers, and a small grant that supported their work has just run out – so even a modest contribution to them will really help them continue their work. Since this auction will be held in a smaller space, with limited lead time, our goal is to raise $1,000 for them.
There are THREE great ways that you can support this project:
1) Join Artists for Animal Causes(on Facebook at Artists for Farm Animals), and help us organize this upcoming event and others to follow. We plan to meet once or twice a month – and we are a pretty fun group if we do say so ourselves.
2) Donate a piece of artwork to the auction – we are looking to get at least 20 pieces of art donated. If you would be willing to donate a piece, reply to firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a time to drop off your work. Donating artists will not receive a portion of the sales price of the work if it sells, but they will be able to get their work back if it does not sell.
3) Come to the event and invite your friends! It will be a fun evening, and a chance to take home a great piece of art while supporting a good cause.
