As a Development Board member for the Cleveland chapter of America SCORES, I want to invite you all to attend our upcoming event Inspired Art, a collaboration of Cleveland artists and young Cleveland poets of the after-school program America SCORES Cleveland. The original poetry of Cleveland kids involved in America SCORES has compelled over 40 local artists to create and donate artwork to support the after-school health and literacy program. At the benefit auction, students will witness their visions brought to life and artists will experience the poetry on a deeper level as select youth perform.
America SCORES provides unique, creative after-school programming for more than 600 youth in nine Cleveland public schools, teaching poetry, service-learning and soccer to measurably improve literacy, community engagement and fitness. Ticket and art sales will provide students with the opportunity to participate in America SCORES’ soccer, creative writing and service-learning programming.
Tickets for Inspired Art are $75* and include:
- Heavy hors d’oeuvres provided by Duet Catering
- Great Lakes beer & assorted wines
- Free parking
- Poetry performances by America SCORES poet-athletes
- The opportunity to meet the artists
- Music by DJ Bradley P
- Desserts & coffee provided by Duet Catering
*Tickets are $75 pre-sale thru June 4 at midnight. Tickets at the door are $80. The location is: smARTspace at 78th Street Studios in Gordon Square Arts District 1305 W. 80th Street, Cleveland, OH 44102
I will be in attendance helping out during the event. I hope to see you there! As always, please spread the word 🙂
