BENEFITING: ART ROAD

EVENT DATE: Nov 02, 2010

THE STORY:

Dear friends of Art Road Nonprofit,

As an Art Road Nonprofit Board Member, I am pleased to announce that Carol Hofgartner, our Founder and Executive Director of Art Road Nonprofit has been selected as a 2010 Local Hero awardee through our Neighborhood Excellence Initiative®. In honor of Carol’s commitment to the growth and vitality of Metro Detroit community, Art Road Nonprofit will receive $5,000 from the Bank of America Charitable Foundation on December 8, 2010. The Bank of America Neighborhood Excellence Initiative is designed to recognize and encourage nonprofits, individuals and students for their community leadership and service.
I first learned of Art Road about three years ago when I met Carol at a business event. Carol invited me to come into the art room and do art with the kids at Edison elementary. I went thinking I might be able to give them some of my time and money and walked away with far more then I had ever dreamed. Doing art with the kids left me feeling hopeful and inspired. The kids are so engaging and creative and extremely grateful to have us there. I started taking some of my clients who were looking to be more creative in their companies and lives. The response has been overwhelming. The companies involved have put new structures in place to honor the creative part that exists in all of us. I have seen first hand, Carol’s ability to make a difference where ever she goes. Her work at Art road is reaching past the walls of the school and children and creating an impact on the entire community.
I invite you to join us in matching the $5,000 Bank of America grant by December 8, 2010. The matching dollars will be used to sustain our current art program and begin the growth to an additional school. For just $7 an art student receives the gift of one art class. Together, we will help children achieve their goals, realize their dreams and become more creative, positive and productive adults.
Donations at all dollar amounts welcome.

Please contact me at (248) 310-9648 or knapp_kim@yahoo.com if you have any questions in regards to our desire to match the $5,000 Bank of America Local Hero Award.

Kim Knapp,
Art Road Nonprofit Board Member
