"Picture A Cure " fundraiser at Red Art Gallery

Picture a Cure is a colourful Red Art Gallery fundraiser for three locally based charities;
Multiple Sclerosis, Leukemia/Lymphoma and Victoria Women's Transition House.
Why - you ask?
We felt we would celebrate our third year of business by making a "3 way" difference in the community!
We will be donating 33% of sales proceeds from artwork purchased during the event,
to the three organizations. 
How does it work?
You buy a work of art you love, and the charities benefit with 33% of the value....simple eh?
We also have a Sealed Bid Auction to which a number of like-minded local businesses have donated some
very unique items for this fundraiser.
Picture a Cure runs from March 13th through 31st at Red Art Gallery.
Opening Event is at 7 p.m. on Wednesday March 13.
Only 33 tickets will be available, for $33 each.  The evening includes complimentary wine and nibblies.
Tickets go on sale March 1st. The first 33 people who contact us via email requesting tickets will be chosen!
The event will continue until the end of March, and there are hundreds of wonderful works of art in the gallery
to consider.  Bidding on Auction items will continue as well.  So if you can't make the opening event, you can
drop in anytime during regular gallery hours. Please consider putting yourself in the Picture with this worthy
and colourful event...Red Gallery values your participation in helping us continue to make a difference in
our community.  
But ... the event runs for two weeks, why should I participate in the Opening Event?
Those 33 lucky people will get first chance to view and purchase brand new works of art, created especially
for this event by 15 top gallery artists. They will also get first chance to bid on Auction items with our sealed
bid process, and one lucky participant will win a $500 credit to Red Art Gallery.
