Notes from SOS Public Meeting – February 4, 2014 and Art Auction 2-6-14

The Artists United for Public Safety Awareness fundraiser event at Roux 26 on Thursday, February 6, 2014 was fantastic!

Community Awareness was our #1 priority and I think we achieved that with approximately 150 people in attendance!

Fantastic!

We enjoyed tremendous support from our community. The venue was great. We were humbled by the generous donations of our local Artists. We were humbled by the support of our vineyards and by the participation in the fund-raising portion of the night.

We are still working through expenses versus money raised. What we can say is that every single piece of Art was auctioned and approximately $6,000 was generated!

“A citizen-voiced plan to provide for a secure, stable and sustainable Josephine County.”

The Art Auction Committee did an outstanding job!
