It sounds like the premise for a reality TV show challenge: Put a bunch of art lovers in a room with just as many pieces of art, serve them cocktails and snacks, and then set them loose to dash for their favorite pieces. Everyone gets to take home a piece of art, but whether or not the contestants get their favorite depends on how fast they are.
That's basically the idea for the first-ever Friends for Life Art Dash. For the $100 ticket price, each participant will have their shot at grabbing their favorite piece of art, all of which was donated by local artists. Everyone who purchases the $100 ticket is guaranteed to leave with a piece of art.
Those who would like to attend but can't spare the $100 ticket price can get an Art Dash Friends ticket for $25. Both the $100 and the $25 tickets come with complimentary hors d’oeuvres, wine, and beer.
All proceeds will benefit Friends for Life's work to provide education, housing, food, transportation, and healthy life skills training to people living with HIV/AIDS.
Tickets may be purchased here.
