Publicolor hosted their annual benefit, Stir, Splatter + Roll on April 22, 2014 at Martin Luther King Jr. High School. Following cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, guests were invited to showcase their own artistic ability! We covered our festive outfits with jumpsuits provided by Tyveck and designed our own tote bags alongside notable artists and designer. At the end of the event, attendees were able purchase their totes at the suggested price of $50 to $100. Artist Rashid Johnson’s table raised $2,300 and one tote bag sold for $400.
The event also honored Michael Kaiser, President of the Kennedy Center. Actress Bernadette Peters presented him with his award. Publicolor also honored Benjamin Moore and Gary DeBode of Edison Properties. Simon Doonan presented both with their awards.
The evening raised just under $1 million dollars. All proceeds go towards Publicolor’s mission to engage students in their education, while teaching them strong and transferable work habits so that they are prepared to be productive in both college and career.
