Dart for Art Call for Artists
What is Dart for Art?
Dart for Art’s core purpose is to raise funds for children and young adults suffering from Lyme disease who otherwise cannot afford treatment. 100% of all Funds raised from the event go directly to fund treatment grants. Artist support is Critical to the Success of This Event – their generosity and talent make this lively and entertaining evening possible.
Dart for Art is a unique cocktail event in a festive art gallery setting. It is not an Auction! Guests are assigned a darting number upon arrival. As the party begins, guests stroll amongst the artwork, mingling with artists while enjoying cocktails and appetizers. As numbers are randomly announced, guests “DART” for their favorite piece of art. Dart for Art is a coveted event and a fun filled evening. Past years have Sold Out! Many artists donate year after year and love attending the event, knowing they are making a difference in the life of a child suffering with Lyme disease. Please view the 2018 Event Catalog.
