The Art of Giving Charitable Event
Get a jump on Memorial weekend with a night of food, drinks, a little paint, and a lot of fun at THE ART OF GIVING, a charitable event on May 23rd hosted by Frame Your Face - The Elm Room at Vinotecca in Birmingham, MI.
Now in its tenth year, The Art of Giving will come full circle, commemorating its milestone anniversary by supporting its first beneficiary, The Pink Fund.
In past years, the event has also raised funds for non-profits such as Lighthouse of Oakland County, Mittens for Detroit, Children’s Village, The Rhonda Walker Foundation and more.
Tom Maniaci, is the creative force behind The Art of Giving.
"This year is really special because we get to bookend our first ten years with our friends at The Pink Fund. We're grateful beyond belief for the generous support of our community and we look forward to another successful decade."
At this year's event, Maniaci - whose portraits are inspired by American pop artists such as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein - will set up a 50" x 50" paint-by-number canvas where attendees will pay to paint it in 25 sections, adding to the monies raised that night.
With a nod to The Pink Fund, this year's paint-by-number canvas will be a portrait of "Pink Cadillac" songstress and the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin. Once complete, the portrait will be auctioned off to the highest bidder that night.
Additionally there will be a Vinotecca signature pink cocktail, music by Dirty 313 with DJ Alex Maniaci, live and silent auctions, a raffle, and fashion by Matt Richmond's Paper Dress Code.
