8 X 10 FUNDRAISER 2018
8X10 2018 is just under two months away, so save the date! Buy a ticket and prepare yourself for a great party, and to leave said great party with some great art.
8 X 10 Draw and Party | 15 December | 7-12 PM
Bridget Moser Artwork Raffle | 15 December | 9:30 PM
Limited number of 150 tickets | $20 each
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.
