Just received this note from SAWCC about the auction I participated in. It sounds like it was a success! And, check out their upcoming events, too.
"On behalf of SAWCC's board members, I would like to thank you once again for your participation in the 2008 SAWCC Art Auction Benefit. Thanks to the generosity and support of donors such as yourself, the benefit was a tremendous success, with over 150 attendees and nearly $15,000 raised for the organization. With these funds, SAWCC will be able to continue to carry out our mission for the advancement, visibility, and development of emerging and establishing South Asian Women artists. In fact, we already have several events planned for 2009 that will benefit from this year's fundraiser, including:
• January – SAWCC LitFest, with featured guest Jhumpa Lahiri
• February – CLAGS workshop at the New Schoool
• August – SAWCC Visual Arts Show
Please visit www.sawcc.org for more details on these and other SAWCC programs. "
