ArtErotica 2010 Thank You!

THANK YOU from the 2010 ArtErotica Planning Committee!

As you know, every cent collected in ticket and auction sales at an Octopus Club party goes directly to AIDS Services of Austin’s Paul Kirby Emergency Fund, which provides critical assistance to our friends and neighbors living with HIV and AIDS.

This year, we’ve raised $56,000—a record amount, and proceeds from the art auction are still coming in. In addition to that, AE2010 was our largest silent auction yet, featuring 450 fantastic pieces of art. More than 1,100 people came together for Austin’s sexiest nonprofit fundraiser!

Without our corporate sponsors and hosts, the experience of ArtErotica wouldn’t be possible. Read more »
