SOMO raises funds at Second Annual Picture Me Perfect Art Crawl presented by Zoetis
KANSAS CITY – Special Olympics Missouri (SOMO) and Southeast Enterprises teamed up to host the Second Annual Picture Me Perfect Art Crawl presented by Zoetis in Brookside on Sunday, Oct. 15 from 2-6 p.m.
This year, we had more than 60 people come out to support our two amazing organizations. Together, we raised more than $13,250. In two years, this fundraiser has now raised more than $26,000!
“The 2nd annual Picture Me Perfect Art Crawl was again a huge success,” Kansas City Development Director Christina McDonough-Hunt said. “We love being able to highlight our artists and their amazing talents and gifts. The Brookside community has welcomed us these past two years with a warm embrace and we’re grateful. We very much look forward to next year!”
Back in July, SOMO athletes and Southeast Enterprises associates began creating artwork at the Nelson Atkins Museum for this one-of-a-kind event. At the Picture Me Perfect Art Crawl, everyone had the opportunity to purchase this amazing art and support these two amazing organizations as well! It was a win-win! All the proceeds will go directly to funding programs for SOMO and Southeast Enterprises.
The artwork was on display at several Brookside businesses during the event, including Commerce Bank, LADYCO, Brookside Framing & Gallery, Shop Local KC, Optical Innovations, Sierra Winter Jewelry, Foo’s Fabulous Custard, a store named STUFF, and the Corner Candleshop.
Throughout the event, visitors were able to meet with the artists. There were plenty of appetizers and drink specials at each art crawl location as well. We hope to see everyone at the Third Annual Picture Me Perfect Art Crawl next year!
