For 32 years the Spruill Arts Guild has been hosting Artistic Affair, an annual fundraising event for the Spruill Center for the Arts. It is the biggest fundraiser for the Spruill Center and this year’s event raised a record amount. Through ticket sales, sponsorships and live and silent auctions the 2018 Artistic Affair raised $44,000 (after expenses) for the Spruill Center for the Arts. New to the event this year was the introduction of pledge cards for the Spruill Center’s Youth Art Program and it was received with an overwhelming response. Contributions were made to help send children to one of Spruill’s many youth art classes or camps.
“Thanks to the hard work of our volunteer members, the Spruill Arts Guild had our most successful Artistic Affair this year,” said Spruill Arts Guild President, June Morris. “One hundred percent of our proceeds are donated annually to the Spruill Center to support bringing arts education to children and adults. The Spruill Center for the Arts plays an important role in the cultural life of our metro Atlanta community, and the Guild is proud to be a part of it.”
The Spruill Arts Guild is a women’s group that focuses on supporting the Center through fundraising and hospitality. They have raised more than $1 million to support the mission and programming of Spruill Arts. Additionally the Guild also provides food and warm hospitality for Spruill Gallery opening receptions and for many other events.
