Alpha Lambda Delta Art Swap and Bake Sale

Date Of Event * Friday, October 14, 2016
Time *
5:30pm to 9:00pm
Location *
MIAD Student Union
Cost *
Donations appreciated
The Details *
Do you like baked goods? Do you like art? Do you have great pieces that you love but don’t have room for anymore or know what to do with?
Do you like to bake? Do you have pieces of art that you would be interested in donating or swapping for other pieces of art?
Then this is the event for you!

Proceeds from the bake sale and any art that is sold rather than swapped, will go to help fund Alpha Lambda Delta as they donate to homeless youth in Washington D.C. on their upcoming trip to a leadership conference. This is the first fundraiser for this new organization on the MIAD campus!

Contact Allison Klosinski or Lauren Elwing if you would like to donate baked goods for the event.
Contact Mara Dentici or Ciara Rouze if you would like to donate a piece of art work for the swap, but will not be able to attend.

Come and join us for this fun and unique program that allows students to swap and share their artwork and give back to an important cause!
