Calling all Artists

Dear Artist:


The Board of Directors of the Philadelphia Center is seeking your involvement in our annual Art Auction Against AIDS, Saturday, August 11, 2018, at Sam’s Town Casino and Hotel in Shreveport, Louisiana. The auction supports HIV/AIDS education and outreach in our community. The funds generated by the auction are more important than ever due to continuing budget cuts.

The Philadelphia Center Art Auction Against AIDS has been known for its wonderful variety of local art. Last year’s selection of art items was phenomenal, and we would like to continue this trend. You will receive two tickets to the auction and also a tax form for your charitable donation.

This year’s theme of superheroes and villains, “Legends of Tomorrow,” will be brought to life at Sam’s Town Ballroom on August 11th. It will be a night filled with music, dancing, and iconic heroes and villains. The event will receive coverage on TV, radio, local magazines, and social media. We are expecting 400-600 patrons. I am certain tickets will sell out for this one!

Please fill out the enclosed donation form and attach to your work and also include an artist’s bio. Your art pieces can be delivered to the Philadelphia Center or pick up can be arranged if necessary (318-222-6633 x2016).

We are so grateful for your donations. This event would not be possible without your generosity!
