I'll give five bucks if you can say that ten times as fast as you can! Character Counts Coalition Color Run in Camera Park! That's what the Gallery did today, and it was OH SO MUCH FUN!
It was our first time being a sponsor, and we represented our Mall, Stratford Square. Over 100 people pledged and ran for something we felt was super important, and it's our morals as a business! Character Counts believes in being a caring, trustworthy citizen and helping others in our communities . And we believe being kind to strangers has a domino affect and can ultimately change someone's life!
With all the beautiful colors blending in the air, we couldn't not think of ART, so we joined as a sponsor. We were also lucky enough to be the recipient to the Grand Prize winner today who raised the most money for the Color Run and they will be receiving a private lesson on Fluid Art here in the Gallery.
We sold Fluid Art today by myself Jennifer Mroz, Kaitlin Wargo, Classic Jerf, Buzy Lizzy and Dills. It was a lot of fun explaining how Fluid Art is made, and who we were as a new small business in Bloomingdale. We managed to sell 2 paintings in the hour and a half that we were there, and raised $35 in donations for Cancer Research, a topic that hits home for the Gallery - plus we were able to tell a lot of people about next week's opening night reception, and our upcoming IMPACT : inspire Skate Deck show. Not to mention, our table was beside the sponsor Chick - fila, my favorite!
Thank you to all who came out today, spoke with us, donated to us and to my artist and friend, Kaitlin Wargo who joined me to sell our work today!
