BENEFITING: Boys and Girls Club of South Oakland County
EVENT DATE: Aug 31, 2013
Last year, I helped 300 runners create beautiful art by throwing paint as they ran by large canvasses on their route. That project helped raise money for the Boys and Girls Club of South Oakland County in Michigan, one of my favorite charities.
Here's the news: THEY WANT ME BACK! And I need your help, friends, because Michigan Youth Arts, the sponsoring agency for the race, wants me too!
This year will be over twice the size of last year's event, with an art project for the Boys and Girls Club AND one for Michigan Youth Arts. Runners will again create, now before, during AND after the race.
With this expansion, I need support. There will be supplies, equipment and follow-up to make it all look nice. I also welcome volunteers who would like to work with me on August 31. Let me know if you are interested and I'll tell you what I need!
If you donate $50 or more, you will receive a custom original piece from the 4th Street art project during the race.
If you donate $100 or more, you will also receive a ticket to the Boys and Girls Club auction on September 28, 2013 where many of these pieces will be displayed and sold.
I am excited! This project was fun and beautiful last year, and this year looks even better. Join me in making this happen! Thank you so much - John
