The Art of Giving commemorates its 10th anniversary by supporting its first beneficiary, The Pink Fund, a public charity that provides financial support to breast cancer patients. The event is hosted by Birmingham’s Frame Your Face, which has raised more than $325,000 for metro Detroit area organizations. Tom Maniaci, local artist and Frame Your Face pop-portrait studio owner, is the creative force behind The Art of Giving.
Attendees will pay to paint a 50-inches-by-50-inches paint-by-number canvas, which will be a portrait of Aretha Franklin. The finished portrait will be auctioned off to the highest bidder. The event will also feature food and wine by Vinotecca, music by Dirty 313 with DJ Alex Maniaci, live and silent auctions, a raffle, and fashion by Matt Richmond’s Paper Dress Code. The Art of Giving will be emceed by Josh Landon from Fox 2 Detroit.
