8 X 10 FUNDRAISER 2017
DRAW AND PARTY | 16 December, 2017 | 7-12 PM (Draw starts 8:00)
ARTWORK PREVIEW | 13-15 December | 12-5 PM
LISA STINNER-KUN ARTWORK RAFFLE | 16 December | 9:30 pm
PLATFORM is very excited to announce this year’s annual 8 X 10 fundraiser!
Not sure what 8X10 is? Well, first off, it’s a really fun party, but there’s more to it than that.
Here’s how it works: Tickets are $50, and a ticket guarantees an artwork. When your ticket is drawn at random, you select a work of art from the wall. You might get called first, or last, or 25th, or 25th from last. You are, in essence, allowing the hand of fate to help curate your art collection (or pick out a great gift). It’s all so exciting and vaguely mystical! Just like the holiday season.
Always a popular event, always a fun night, and all proceeds go towards supporting PLATFORM’s Programming and Outreach initiatives.
Tickets are also available in the gallery office right up until the draw begins at 7:30.
PLATFORM is very fortunate to have the support of an incredible group of (generous and talented) local and national artists willing to donate artwork for the event. Once we have the full list of artists we’ll post it here!
