Take a look at some of our annual fundraising events and collaborative workshops throughout the years!

Live Arts Benefit Fundraising Event 2015


This year’s Live Art Benefit was particularly outstanding as ArtWorks invited, not one, but two very special celebrity performers to take the stage—singer songwriter Suzanne Vega, and ArtWorks Young Artist Stephanie Gabaud, a celebrity among the ArtWorks community having received a public blessing from the Pope. Check out our Videos page to see their performances from this incredible night!

The roster of talent continued with the Live Artists on-site who donated their time and talents for the night. The line-up included veterans of ArtWorks benefits such as Ed
Heck, Christian Aldunate, Babette Marciano, and Col Wallnuts, as well as new participants including Andrea LaBouff, Paul Carluccio, Gavin Snider, and Natalia Jheté. The evening also featured an array of culinary treats provided by City Winery, sommelier choice wines, and desserts from Insomnia Cookies.
