Every May, Birmingham AIDS Outreach hosts "Arty Party", a silent and live art auction benefiting local the agency, who provides much needed services to HIV positive individuals and the public. The services BAO provides include case management, food pantry, clothing closet, medication assistance, and medical item assistance to those individuals who are HIV positive. BAO also provides HIV prevention, education and testing services in the community, schools and prisons. The money raised from "Arty Party" helps them continue providing these services.
Birmingham AIDS outreach is currently accepting donations of art of all types for the auction. Art can be dropped off at the Birmingham AIDS Outreach offices or you can contact the Events Coordinator to arrange a pickup. The only restriction on the art is that it needs to be able to fit in a small u-haul truck, or in a small car if it is going to be picked up.
To donate art or arrange a pick up, contact Jamie at 322-4197 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Birmingham AIDS Outreach is a non-profit organization. All donations are tax deductible, and the agency is able to provide you with the necessary form for your taxes.
Artful Unity, and our sister site, Happy Hippy Jewelry, will each be donating a piece to the auction. We will reveal more details about the piece in a later blog post. We hope you will join us in supporting this hardworking worthwhile agency.
