We are also very excited to announce that ArtBeast will be providing art activities for kids at our event.  ArtBeast is a local Sacramento “creative art center for children that includes open studio time and the opportunity to explore various arts … The proceeds from ArtBeast fund programs for homeless children and youth. Every penny raised at ArtBeast goes to one of two places: back into ArtBeast or into Tubman House, a residential community for homeless youth and children. ArtBeast is a creative effort to sustain good work and reduce dependency on dwindling funding for nonprofits.”
