On April 21, 2017, CAKE hosted our fifth annual Art Auction fundraiser at 826chi. The event was a great success, and we would like to thank many people and institutions who helped make this year’s event so memorable.

826chi was a wonderful venue who was super accommodating and nice to us. Special thanks to our contact Tyler!

Ian McDuffie and their assistant Brad Rohloff were the perfect auctioneers, generously donating their time and talents.

Blick Art MaterialsRevolution Brewing and Cream Wine Distributors sponsored our event.  They were all easy to work with and we are so thankful for their generosity.
