The Art of Caring Annual Fundraiser
The Art of Caring is a unique experience of art and advocacy uniting for the greater good of our children in Baltimore City. One of a kind art pieces and other items are auctioned off and proceeds are used to support children who have become victim to child abuse and neglect.
Every year, hundreds of people gather to connect with artists, corporate and civic leaders, and CASA staff, board members and volunteers to demonstrate their commitment to the health and safety of Baltimore’s most vulnerable children. This signature annual event allows friends and supporters to learn more about CASA’s mission while highlighting the local talent in our city during an art auction.
This year, our signature event was virtual with a live streamed program that aired on Sunday, September 13. Our Honorary Chairman was former NFL player, artist, and community activist, Aaron Maybin. We had over 20 corporate sponsors, 50 local artists, and more than 200 virtual attendees. Additionally, we had a 36% increase in total auction proceeds compared to last year despite the reduction in attendees due to the virtual event. More importantly, we raised awareness surrounding the valuable work that CASA is doing to help our city’s abused and neglected children and youth in foster care.
