Annual Art Auction Overview
                                    Free Arts NYC’s Annual Art Auction Benefit is a high-profile evening and exclusive party
                                    welcoming guests from the art, fashion, business and entertainment communities. The auction
                                    raises over 40% of the organization’s annual operating budget which directly impacts our
                                    effectiveness in reaching under-served children and families.

                                    This year, Free Arts NYC has partnered with Calvin Klein Collection for the auction. Past partners
                                    have included Vanity Fair, Dior, Emporio Armani and 7 for all Mankind. Last year’s event raised
                                    over $775,000 through the sale of large-scale Polaroid 20x24 images created exclusively
                                    for Free Arts by top contemporary artists such as Donald Baechler, Chuck Close, James
                                    Nares and Christopher Wool, among others. Event chair persons Amy Sacco and Mary Alice
                                    Stephenson along with past honorary chairs Liv Tyler, Scarlett Johansson and Clive Owen

About Free Arts NYC
             Free Arts NYC helps low-income, homeless, abused and neglected children develop
             the inner resources they need to constructively express their emotions and build
             self-esteem. With the help of dedicated and caring volunteer mentors, we deliver
             creative arts programs that encourage children to express themselves in a supportive
             environment in order to develop communication and trust.

             Small groups of children pair with teams of volunteers throughout
             the academic year.

             Children and their parents, or caregivers, pair with teams
             of volunteers for 8-week program segments.

             FREE ARTS DAYS
             Saturday arts festivals for 100 children, each sponsored by
             an individual, family or corporation.

             Every child attends a live performance or cultural event.

             Week-long summer camps where 100 children learn
             about art, music, and dance from different cultures.
