Just in time for the holiday season, the nice people at Slideluck Potshow are having a fancy fundraiser auction at Sandbox Studios. The auction includes some pretty nice photographs (we know because we helped print a few of them). There will be amazing food from a number of supper clubs, delicious wines poured by The Noble Rot, beer lovingly provided by Brooklyn Brewery, cocktails, deserts and some fun surprises. Plus (as you can see from the invite) DJ Spooky is one of the primary sponsors of the evening so I’m expecting the music to be over the top as well …
The point of the fundraiser is for Slideluck to expand their programming and reach more communities nationally and globally, bring in a development director, purchase needed cameras and supplies for the Slideluck Youth Initiative – as well as hire staff to continue empowering underprivileged kids through photography and multimedia storytelling. In addition to working with students in the Hudson Guild projects in Chelsea, Slideluck plans to build community between youth photography programs all over the world and create a centralized platform for sharing their insights and experiences through the language of images.
That’s the hard part … the easy part for you is to just purchase a ticket and come out for a night of fun … and maybe even go home with a new piece of art!
