Charity Event Benefiting Free Arts

A Message From Our Chair & Co-chair

March 1, 2023


Dear Friends,


We are proudly and eagerly organizing the 12th Annual Art Swagger event. We’re excited to announce that after

the past few years of modifying for the pandemic, we’ll be reverting to our original format! We’re coordinating

Architecture & Interior offices that will be opening up for our art walk currently scheduled on Thursday,

October 5, 2023.


We are diligently working on securing sponsors for the event and would appreciate your consideration as a

sponsor for this year’s event. If you have sponsored in past years, we truly appreciate you and hope you can

continue your support.

Please check out our website for more information and to see past events:

We’ve had a lot of growth and success promoting through our social 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 suggested 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 see sponsorship levels below and let us know how you can contribute.


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