ArtCares 2011

April 16, 2011

Nordstrom presents ArtCares 2011, with the generous support of Toby Devan Lewis. This signature fundraiser for the AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland will be held at the Battery Park Power House (in the Detroit Shoreway neighborhood on Cleveland’s Near West Side) on Saturday, April 16th at 7:00pm for VIPs, and 8pm for the public. All proceeds from the event directly support the AIDS Taskforce.

This year’s event will honor the Zone Family for their unwavering support of the AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland, the arts, and the City of Cleveland. Councilman Joe Cimperman will serve as auctioneer, Mark Zinni of Fox 8 News will be celebrity emcee, and the event chairs are John Farina & Adam Tully, and Noelle Celeste & Jon Benedict. Honorary Chairman is Howard Lake. Entertainment will be provided by the always irreverent and fun, Lounge Kitty, and DJ MisterbradleyP.

Ticket prices are $50 for General Admission and $100 for VIP. Please contact Rebecca Strong at rstrong@atfgc.org, or 216.621.0766 x232 for more information.

Initiated by the Cleveland Institute of Art (CIA) in 2003, ArtCares is now an established collaborative tradition between the CIA and the AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland. This event arose from awareness of the devastating impact the AIDS epidemic has had on individuals involved in the creative arts community, and from a consequent awareness that artists are uniquely positioned to contribute to the fight against HIV/AIDS. ArtCares celebrates contemporary art with both a silent and live auction of donated work.
