Last Saturday, May 25, more than 80 people came to Beauty and Brawn Art Gallery and Think Space (3501 W. Fullerton Ave.) to support LoganSquarist at its Spring 2013 Fundraiser. More than $900 was raised in raffle ticket sales and in-kind donations!
Guests enjoyed food, truffles and caramels provided by Katherine Anne Confections (@kachocolatier, 2745 W. Armitage Ave.), beer from Revolution Brewery (@revbrewchicago, 2323 N. Milwaukee Ave.), and wine from FoodSmart Stores (@foodsmartstores, 2901 W. Armitage Ave. or 3415 W. Diversey) and Provenance Food & Wine (@provenancefw, 2528 N. California Ave.). DJ Bashert of Bashert Productions set the mood spinning world pop and trip hop music.
Adorning the walls at the Beauty and Brawn Art Gallery is the HER exhibit, featuring works from Christine Bespalec-Davis, Melanie Brown, Lauren Goldstein, Amanda Lee Frank, Susan Kimball, Jannah Tate and Lindsey Meyers.
Let the Bidding Begin
With 11 raffle packages, guests had a lot to choose from—and bid on! From restaurant gift cards to Paladar, Table Donkey & Stick and Scofflaw to zoom-in office professional teeth whitening from 1st Family Dental to , the prizes were too good to pass up.
Thanks for Your Support
I want to personally thank all of the neighbors who came out Saturday, the businesses who donated raffle items, Beauty and Brawn Art Gallery and Think Space for donating their space and the LoganSquarist Ambassador team for putting together an amazing event.
