Thanks for pointing that out. The announcement on our blog apparently doesn't include our studio address. Shame on us. We'll put up a revised announcement promptly. :oops:

1717 17th Street, Suite #108
San Francisco, CA 94103

Is there any way to bid if you can't physically make it to the event?

If you know anyone who is going perhaps ... you could let them know your highest bid on a given artpiece ...
That's the only way I can think of ...

Well, the Art Auction was a success!! Latest figures arrived at over $10,000 raised for EMERGENCY, an impressive total! More info to come on that. Thanks to everyone that participated! :D

Hey, Enrico, how did the Sketch Crawl itself go? During all the excitement I didn't get to hear how all that came down.

The benefit auction was quite something ... really a fantastic time.
SketchCrawl was spectacular as well ... we had around 80 artists participate in San Francisco ... from age 8 to past 70 !
and many more around the US and the rest of the world.
Be sure to come by and see some of the wonderful watercolors and sketches.

it's really heartwarming to see the community come together to give like this ...
if you'd still like to donate you can still do so at emergency's website

http://emergencyusa.org

thank you all !
