Happy December!

In light of World AIDS Day and HIV awareness, Dining Out for Life in Louisville gets set for another year. The premise of DOFL? You dine out, and the restaurant donates proceeds that day to HIV/AIDS organizations. For our city, that will be the House of Ruth.

To get in on this, find a participating restaurant and go chow down!

COMING UP: Be Creative. Be Safe. Postcards – An event for World AIDS Day

August 24, 2009

In celebration of World AIDS Day, STARViN-ARTiST Gallery is doing something really special, if not remarkable.

The gallery, which recently moved to the heart of the Original Highlands on Baxter Avenue, will be having an HIV/AIDS fundraiser called, “Be Creative. Be Safe. Postcards,” a series in which artists will be selling original pieces, all to benefit clients who provide services for those living with HIV/AIDS.

Here’s the fun part. The series will feature all kinds of artists, from those entering their very first show to icons within the local art scene. All works will be sold for $35, but you won’t find out who did the piece until after you purchase it.

The event is actually in two parts. First comes the preview show, on November 27; a sneak peak of the works, which is open to the public. The benefit sale takes place the following Tuesday on December 1. All pieces are first-come, first-serve and you can also enter a raffle to win an original work! Even if you don’t buy anything, you are encouraged to attend. Admission to the preview show is $35, but the benefit sale will only set you back $5. And all of this is meant to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS, so why not get involved in helping stop this epidemic?

ARTISTS: If you want to be a part of the series and contribute a piece, please contact the studio at the address below to obtain a submission form or send an email:
