Lend a helping hand to Second Helpings of Indianapolis tonight at the Tonic Gallery Silent Auction, a fundraiser by Indianapolis artists crusading against hunger in Indy. From 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm this Friday, November 21, the Big Car Gallery in Fountain Square will play host to the Tonic Gallery’s seventh annual silent auction.
The best of the best of Indianapolis artists have donated their work for you to bid on. Take home a piece of Indianapolis art for a bargain basement price and the big bonus of helping the Indianapolis community. Bidding on all pieces begins at $100 and builds in $50 increments. Forego the bidding process on something your really love with the “Buy it Now” option of paying $400. In addition to bidding on artwork, bid on aprons decorated by SENSE children and Tonic Gallery and Tonic Ball tee shirts and merchandise. All proceeds from every sale go to Second Helpings, an Indianapolis nonprofit organization dedicated to ending hunger in the Circle City.
Tonic Gallery is a grassroots organization of eclectic Indianapolis musicians and artists. They formed in 2002 with a concert of cover songs of Gram Parsons. This first Indianapolis event was such a success that the Tonic Gallery decided to do it again. They created a committee and worked on a fundraising ideas for the next year. The idea that stuck was a one night one piece art show.
Since it began, Tonic Gallery, as well as the Tonic Ball that always accompanies it, have become very popular Indy events. Help the Indianapolis community this weekend, and contribute to Indianapolis art while you are at it. For more information about Tonic Gallery, visit their website.
