“The art of saving lives” event at Fusion Design

We reported in our 7/10/08 blog below that Byron White with Xavier’s Community Building Institute was scheduled to attend this past Tuesday night’s WNNA meeting to take questions about the Xavier Square project. As it turned out, he did not come to the meeting, but it is hoped he will be at next month’s meeting to respond to questions that were collected from attendees.

One of the owners of the new one-stop real estate company Fusion Design starting up next to Buskin’s Bakery did attend the meeting and gave WNNAers an overview of the services that will be offered. Additionally, he invited everyone to come to a community wide event this Saturday that his company and LifeCenter are co-sponsoring. The purpose of “The art of saving lives” is to raise awareness for organ and tissue donation through art. Highlights will include a live mural painting, a wine bar, hors d’oeuvres, a silent art auction from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., and numerous displays of original artwork for sale. All proceeds will benefit LifeCenter’s community education fund.

When: Saturday, July 19 from 6-10 p.m.
Where: Fusion Design at 4101 Montgomery Rd.
Donation: $10 at the door for which you will receive an original piece of artwork from a collaborative mural that will be created during the event by local artists.
