One Reason Why 2011 Recap!

If you attended this year’s One Reason Why Art Show Fundraiser, you know that it was a huge success. But how much of a success was it?

We reached our fundraising goal AND thanks to YOU, $1,300 will be donated to the Artisan Special Needs Fund, which supports training and education, disaster recovery, technology, and general funds for our artisan groups!

Read on to see how the evening went…


 Guests mixed and mingled…

The food table  had so many yummy organic, farm fresh treats, and was never empty thanks to everyone who brought food and helped serve it.

We “Ooooed” and “Ahhhhed” at the beautiful sparkly elephant from India.


From a relaxing “get-away” donated from Travaasa to  photography sessions from Her Side Project, the silent auction was hard to resist!

Guests admired and purchased unique, one-of-a-kind fairly traded pieces of art… thanks to Art on 5th Gallery for hosting us!

…and, of course enjoyed the One Reason Why ’11 Signature Cocktail!
(donated by ID Soda, Amy’s Ice Cream, and Pecan Street Rum)

Then, guests swaggered out of the event with some sweet swag bags… we couldn’t let them leave empty handed!

 Thanks again to all who helped plan and implement this fantastically successful event. We couldn’t have done it with all of your talents!

We hope all of you enjoyed the event as much as we did, and we look forward to seeing you again next year!  If you enjoyed attending One Reason Why, follow us on twitter and “Like” us on facebook to find out about more upcoming events you might also enjoy!
