From May 19, 2017 to May 21, 2017, Armadillo Art Glass hosted a charity event which will be sponsored by Meals On Wheels, Capital Area Food Bank, ABR Imagery, Northstar Glassworks, and Capitol Area Food Bank. ABR Imagery and Northstar Glassworks were partner sponsors involved in this charity event. The Armadillo Art Glass charity event was sponsored by Meals On Wheels.
Every year in the warehouse district of Southeast Austin, Texas all the glass blowers from the United States get together at the Armadillo Art Glass warehouse by donating their time, effort, talent, resources, art, and money. DJs account for the live music portion of this charity event. Armadillo Art Glass holds a fundraiser inside their charity events as well. Local artists brand together every year at this charity event. The concerts do benefit a good cause.
“They make art. There’s live paintings. It’s just a really chill event.” said Meg Stahl. “Local artists come together to build a community and share art.”
Armadillo Art Glass raised $150,000 dollars for Meals On Wheels last year in 2016. The average amount of donations Armadillo Art Glass receives for their charity events are $150,000 dollars a year. 100% of proceeds go to all nonprofit organizations.
With local artists coming together to form a community, such artists can sell their crafts and artworks for profit which will gear to generate money into the community. These artists are helping the community with their works of art. With these profits, 100% of proceeds go to all nonprofit organizations including Meals on Wheels.
