Sketchy Pink Party at The Betsy-South Beach

Posted: September 30th, 2011 | Artist: | Category: Blog | 2 Comments

Before I get into the details, here is the view from the roof deck of The Betsy-South Beach.

The Betsy-South Beach

In the evening of Sunday, October 23, we will be hosting the Sketchy Pink Party atop that very roof deck to raise money for breast cancer research. There will be live art, music by Raffa & Rainer, drinks, and hors d’oeuvres (mini Cuban sandwiches!) catered by BLT Steak, the Betsy’s stellar in-house eatery.

Five local artists will be on hand to sketch guests’ portraits. For a minimum donation of $30, we will mount your Sketchy in a stylish pink frame, courtesy of Pearl Art Supplies.

Admission to the fundraiser costs $20 at the door. In the spirit of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, all proceeds from the fundraiser will support breast cancer research at the University of Miami’s Braman Family Breast Cancer Institute at Sylvester.

To RSVP, visit the Facebook event page.
