On March 13, 2013, Help Me Grow Orange County brought together friends, families and colleagues to increase awareness of Help Me Grow while raising funds for ongoing operations at the first annual “Art of Giving” art and silent auction in Santa Ana, California. Click above to see the beautiful event invitation.
Local artists shared their artwork and over 20 local businesses provided donations for the silent auction items, all contributing to the success of this event.   In addition, the children’s artwork provided by 10 different locations was inspiring and reminded us all of the importance of art in the lives of young children and families.
OC thanks all of those who supported our inaugural fundraiser “The Art of Helping” Children’s Art Auction.  Room & Board at South Coast Village provided an idyllic venue for the artwork and silent auction items displayed for auction and purchase.
They also thank the event sponsors for their generous support of our first fundraising event. A special thank you to 24 Carrots Catering & Events, AD-Pro, CalOptima, Foster Assessment Center and Testing Services, The Larson Group, PIMCO Foundation, Room & Board and Tom Wood.
OC had a wonderful evening filled with delicious food, good company and amazing artwork, and they
look forward to the next “Art of Helping” Children’s Art Auction in the Spring of 2014. For more information, call HMG OC at 714-939-7142 or write to helpmegrow@hs.uci.edu.
