Spruill Pivots to Live Broadcast; Virtual Format for Annual Artistic Affair Fundraiser
"When we realized we wouldn't be able to host an in-person event again this year, we knew we'd have to get creative to make the event fun and exciting for our supporters,"
In addition to restaurant partnerships, Spruill's event will include a silent auction featuring original works of art. The auction will be open to the public a week in advance of the event. Raffle tickets are now available for purchase and include a $1,000 shopping spree to Lauderhills Fine Jewelry, hand-selected wine baskets from Vino Venue, and a chance to win a free class for two at Spruill.
For the past 35 years, the Spruill Arts Guild has hosted Artistic Affair, raising more than $1 million for Spruill in support of the Arts and artists, from youth and beginners to the most seasoned professionals. Last year, despite the pandemic, Spruill was able to shift to hosting their first ever virtual event and through the generous contributions of their supporters, raised over $40,000. The money raised allowed Spruill to financially support their beloved family of instructors, purchase supplies and equipment needed to safely reopen and fund public art initiatives that took place later in the year.
The much-needed proceeds from Artistic Affair go toward supporting the programs and community outreach of Spruill. In previous years, Artistic Affair has raised money towards youth scholarships, improvements in Spruill's artistic departments and in support of partnerships with other community-based nonprofits.
The event is free; however, patrons will need to register online to participate in the silent auction by visiting https://spruillarts.cbo.io
