DUNWOODY, Ga. - May 16, 2019 - eTradeWire -- For 33 years the Spruill Arts Guild has been hosting Artistic Affair, an annual fundraising event for the Spruill Center for the Arts.  It is the biggest fundraiser for the Spruill Center and this year's event raised a record amount. Through ticket sales, sponsorships and live and silent auctions the 2019 Artistic Affair raised $47,250 (after expenses) for the Spruill Center for the Arts.

This year, Spruill introduced Fund-A-Need after receiving such a positive response from last year's pledge cards. The Fund-A-Need is a paddle raise during the live auction and monies raised go toward providing scholarships to deserving children for Spruill's Youth Art Programs, including Spruill's summer camps. "We had no idea what kind of outcome to expect with the Fund-A-Need," said Spruill Center for the Arts CEO, Bob Kinsey. "When the auctioneer started the bids paddles were being raised across the room and by the end of the auction our patrons contributed $7,000 to our Youth Art Programs." Spruill will be able to award over 20 scholarships with the money raised and continue to help foster understanding and appreciation of visual art with today's youth.
