The Naked Truth Fundraiser was held on August 29th 2015 to raise funds for the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre in Footscray and to collect food for the Welcome West Wagon’s Winter Appeal.
It was the most wonderful day of life drawing broken down into 3 sessions and I am thrilled to announce that we raised $3275.75 for the ASRC and also collected a huge amount of food.
So……the Art Room would like to say thank you!
Firstly, thank you to Megan Crowley for her inspiring idea to hold this wonderful event and her passion to make a change. Thank you for letting the Art Room help with your vision. You are wonderful!
Thank you to all the amazing models including Megan. Thank you John, Angela, Ali, Regina. Matthew, Ricki, Craig, and Glen for donating your time to this wonderful cause. You are all amazing!
Thank you to Kylie Hurley, Linda Jackson, Danni Strauss, Dimi Simieonidis and Feedback Café in Yarraville for your donations of food to keep all the drawers energy up! We thoroughly enjoyed all the beautiful food throughout the day with coffee, tea and wine. A big thank you to Merryn Trevethan for the donation of the coffee.
Thank you to Adrian Morgan for putting together a media release that saw the event promoted on radio and through other media.
Thank you to Ilona Nelson for coming down to record the event in photographs and for all her wonderful work promoting the event on Facebook, Instagram and elsewhere online. You are the engine room of The Art Room!
And finally thank you all of you who came and drew. Thank you for making The Naked Truth the most special day by being there with open minds and open hearts and for your generosity in the donations for the Welcome West Wagon.
With the huge success of The Naked Truth we will definitely be organising another one in the not to distant future and it will be even bigger and better than this one, so stay tuned!
