Arty Party 2010!

This year, Hippybeads is donating to arty party again and we wanted to let you know the details.

As I mentioned last year, Birmingham AIDS Outreach hosts "Arty Party", a silent and live art auction fundraiser, every may. 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.

This year's Arty Party is may 16th. 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. In addition, all artists get invited to the artists party that happens a few days before the event and all artists get in to Arty Party for free (it normally costs $50)!

The necklace we are donating this year combines several of Hillary's favorite elements including bottle caps, formica, glass and wire. Check back Next week to see the completed piece!
