Art to the Rescue on April 15th was a huge success. The event raised $58,000, all going directly to Tiny Tim Rescue Fund and the Animal Care Centers of NY! That’s $13,000 more than the 2013 auction total. Hooray!

Antoine Rose, Spiagge Bianche Study 1

As a new company with the mission of helping artists succeed, we were really proud to participate in this event. We felt lucky to build and donate the artrescue.org auction site, which allowed people to bid on works of art both leading up to and during the event from their mobile devices.

And most importantly, we were able to contribute to two great causes: The Animal Care Center of New York provides shelter for over 30,000 dogs, cats, and rabbits every year. The only organization of its class in New York City, ACC is an open admission shelter, which means they cannot turn away any animals that come through their doors. And Tiny Tim, which works to provide resources for local shelters who pull innocent animals directly from high-kill shelters.

Congrats to Marlborough Gallery and Emmanuel Fremin Gallery for putting on such a successful and worthy event!
