A Message From Our Chair & Co-chair

May 1, 2024

 

Dear Friends,

 

We are proudly and eagerly organizing the 13th Annual Art Swagger event. Last year’s return to our art walk format was not only a fun but successful event in our fundraising efforts. This year we’re looking to continue our tradition, coordinating Architecture & Interior Design offices to open their doors and welcome in artists and guests for our art walk scheduled on Thursday, October 10, 2024.

We are diligently working on securing sponsors and appreciate your consideration as a sponsor for this year’s event. We have some new and exciting sponsorship opportunities so if you have sponsored in the past years, we truly appreciate you and hope you can continue your support and if you are new to sponsorship – thank you! We can’t tell you how critical everyone’s support is to this fundraiser. 

 

If you’d like to get more information on the event, please check out our website: http://artswagger-la.com/. For past events, check out our media platforms as well.

We are extremely proud to be partnering with Free Arts for this amazing event, with all the proceeds from your sponsorship, raffle tickets, and entry donations, going straight to the organization.

“For more than 41 years, Free Arts for Abused Children has been delivering on our philosophy that “ART HEALS!” This is what drives our organization, a network of passionate and concerned individuals coming together to share the healing power of art. Free Arts is dedicated to delivering volunteer-driven arts programs to children throughout greater Los Angeles County who have experienced abuse, neglect, poverty, and homelessness.”

 

“With more than 16.000+ children receiving child welfare services at any given time in L.A. County alone, Free Arts strives to reach more children every year, eager to spark their creative spirit, inspiring and transforming their lives through the power of artistic expression.”

 

Please review the attached sponsorship levels and let us know how you can contribute.

 

We are always open to exploring any other ideas or suggestions you might have as well.

 

We hope you can join in our amazing evening of art, culture and fun.

Sincerely,

Debra L. Haas
