October 5th, Art With Heart returned to the Carlu for the first time in 6 years. This year marked 3 milestones. Casey House began 35 years ago by celebrated journalist June Callwood. She recognized the urgent need for HIV care to not only patients, but also their families.
Back then Casey House was a hospice, today it has become a full hospital with many much needed support programs. Art With Heart turned 30 as emerging and established artists and galleries come together again for a silent and live annual signature fundraising auction . On that theme, few know Canadian artists as well as Stephen Ranger, who he would say has had the honour to connect artists with patrons for 29 amazing years.
Yes this was a night of celebration and what better venue than the stunning art deco 7th floor of The Carlu. In the 1930’s the Round Room was where many high-end weddings held receptions. This night, it was a stage for the after party with live art inspired performances and DJ dancing. So much fun for a great cause. Thanks should go to the many volunteers and a personal thanks to Lisa McDonald for our invitation to attend.
