I was asked by the Lower Eastside Girls Club, to join in the festivities of the Angel Alliance Fall Benefit, which was held on Monday. I set up my inks and pens and lettered names or dates or short quotes on bookmarks and notecards in exchange for donations to the club. I also donated a crystal box to the raffle. (If you won, let me know who you are!) I had no knowledge of the organization until I was asked to join other artists for the evening, but I loved the group of people, learning of their mentoring program and their mission, as well. The Girls Club is a place “where girls 8-23 can grow, learn, have fun and develop confidence in themselves and their ability to make a difference in the world,” their website states. Photographer Aaron Lee Fineman is kindly letting me share some photos he took of the evening.
I was one of several artist donating services for the Angel Alliance Fall Benefit for the Lower Eastside Girls Club. I created offhand bookmarks and greeting cards.
Autumnal music provided a festive atmosphere.
