Thank you to EVERYONE that supported this year’s Every Child Matters Luncheon! Over 340 guests were in attendance. Guests enjoyed strolling amongst several Professional Artist Series exhibits as well as four culminating pieces that were up for silent auction. Inside the ballroom, the Free Arts Youth Leadership Team led the program with a welcome from Patience, poetry and speech by Katie, and more. Even though winners did not need to be present to win one of the US Airways gift cards, all THREE winners were in attendance and expressed their excitement! The audience was captivated by our Professional Artist and Free Arts advocate Frank Thompson as he shared why Free Arts works for the community.

Overall, Free Arts raised over $67,000 to benefit the organization! Free Arts would like to thank the following sponsors for their generosity during this year’s event:

As well as a list of in-kind donors, committee members, volunteers, Free Arts Ambassadors, and staff. This event would not have been a success without our community of supporters.
