From the desk of DeeDee Bott....

We are still excited about the fantastic art all those who partied at our Summer Auction Luck of the Draw: When Art Attacks took home with them. The party was hot – isn’t it always in July in Houston – but the haute crowd was the best ever and they clamored for the art, the Dripping Springs Vodka, Cullinaire Catering’s Mexican treats and the yummy trays from Whole Foods. Oh my, we really thank each of you who were sponsors, who came to the party and bid. All together, you made a great summer for DiverseWorks.

Since fun and entertainment wrapped around art, artists, collectors and friends is the spirit of DiverseWorks, we could not wait too long before heading off toward another event. Mark your calendars now for Saturday, September 26th from 11am to 1pm. when Discovery Green Park, under the imaginative direction of DiverseWorks will be transformed into the 1 (ish) K: Xtreme Meander & Paint-A-Thon.

We will all take a laid-back walk along the Bill and Andrea White Promenade in the the 1 (ish) K: Xtreme Meander. Elite and Masters Level competitors will scramble across the demanding one-kilometer (or so) course in a test of strength and endurance to raise money and awareness for the non-profit art center, DiverseWorks. As well, each team can also create a piece of art with the help of one of Houston’s favorite artists during the Paint-A-Thon.

We’ll have prizes for costumes, and foto-finishes and there will be rehydration stations filled with sweet treats and spirits. Let us know and we’ll send you a list of sponsor benefits. Remember, a team of 40 can sign up at the same time and get their tickets for $40 instead of $50 for individual tickets.

See you in September.
