The event features a live and silent art auction with works by emerging and established artists as well as an exhibit of artwork created by child abuse victims who have received hope and healing through the Art Therapy Program at DCAC. Highlights include tunes by DJ Lucy Wrubel, sweet and savory bites by Wendy Krispin Catering, cocktails courtesy of Republic National Distributing Co. and beer courtesy of Andrews Distributing.
