Gearing up for Arty Party

In a previous post, we mentioned donating a piece to Arty Party, a fundraiser for a local AIDS service organization. Today we wanted to give out more details about arty party and show you pictures of our completed piece!

Every May, Birmingham AIDS Outreach hosts "Arty Party", a silent and live art auction benefiting local the agency. BAO provides services for HIV positive people including food pantry, clothing closet, and medication assistance. BAO also has three prevention and education staff who do everything from speaking at high schools, to testing in bars, to working with prisoners, and more. The money raised from "Arty Party" helps go to these services that support HIV positive people and improve public health.

Birmingham AIDS outreach is currently accepting donations of art of all types for the auction.
To donate art or arrange a pick up, contact Jamie at 322-4197 or Birmingham AIDS Outreach is a non-profit organization. All donations are tax deductible, and the agency is able to provide you with the necessary form for your taxes.

Happy Hippy Jewelry , and our sister site, Artful Unity, will both be donating jewelry for the auction and we hope you will join us in supporting this agency, either by attending or donating.
