Celebrate Art, Celebrate Life! Persad Center Patron Party and Art Auction

20 Apr

Pittsburgh, do you know about the Persad Center?

The Persad Center is our nation’s 2nd oldest licensed counseling center for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered community, and Pittsburgh is lucky enough to have them right here in our community.

Aside from the cause that they support, they host wonderful events in Pittsburgh for the entire community to enjoy!

If you’re an art lover, you surely won’t want to miss their initiative, Celebrate Art, Celebrate Life!

This past Saturday, April 17th, the Persad Center hosted the Patron Party at the brand-new August Wilson Center for African American Culture in Pittsburgh’s Cultural District. The Patron Party, was a reception for approximately 500 artists and special contributors. Sponsors and special guests were lucky enough to be able to preview  a selection of artwork and enjoy dinner and cocktails at this distinctive event.  This event attracted a diverse crowd including business and community leaders, regional artists, and professionals of all ages. The Persad Center hopes that the May 10th  “Celebrate Life, Celebrate Art” 2010 Auction and Benefit will do the same.

Stay tuned to learn more about the May event – for now, enjoy photos from the Persad Patron Party, here:
