Reason to Party celebrated an exciting milestone as it kicked off its first New York event at the Nasdaq in Times Square. The event drew hundreds of philanthropists from Manhattan to as far away as California and Europe.
With the help and enthusiasm of thousands of Bay Area residents, wonderful partners like 7×7, dot429, and Hannig Law Firm, and the many local non-profits we’ve come together to support, Reason to Party has been able to donate over $170,000 to help: man suicide hotlines for at-risk youth via The Trevor Project; plant and maintain more than a hundred trees in and around the city with matching help from Google for Friends of the Urban Forest; provide care to the terminally ill with Maitri; help maintain beaches with Save the Waves; feed members of our community in need of a meal with the SF-Ma
KCRA featured Reason to Party in a live segment this morning. Katie and Mac discussed the event. Verge Artist Ilah Rose Cookston painted a live portrait to give viewers a sense of the live art exhibit experience and an opportunity to meet the artists who will benefit from the event.
What type of art brings together the beauty of the human body, music, and creative interpretation? Dance.
Come sip cocktails all night long while you enjoy exclusive dance performances by CORE Dance Collective. This will be only one of the many types of art you will be able to experience and support to at Reason to Party’s An Art Affair this Friday at the Elks Tower in Downtown Sacramento.
Edgy and provocative, Verge artist Aleksander Bohnak’s installation at this Friday’s Reason to Party event invites guests to become part of the art! Incorporating creative objects, lighting, and large-scale video projections, Alek’s art is sure to entrance, delight, and provide a window into the remarkable talent supported by the Verge Center for the Arts.
