Toronto, Ontario, October 1, 2015 - On November 14, 2015, ARTWORLD FINE ART GALLERY will host the 3rd Annual BELIEVE TO ACHIEVE (BTA) Charity Art Auction in support of Toronto-area youth-at-risk. This exclusive event will be held on Saturday, November 14 at 7:00 pm. Tickets are $100 each (tax-deductible). In addition to a silent art auction and a live art auction, featuring original paintings from more than 100 established artists, guests will be treated to live music, cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and spectacular door prizes.
Sponsored by Jazz FM and spearheaded by media personality, award-winning author and three-time Golden Glove boxing champion Spider Jones, the auction will help Jones raise the funds required to continue providing schools and community outreach groups with motivational seminars, workshops and keynote speakers who inspire by sharing their own true life stories. Proceeds will also support the recently opened Spider's Web Youth Empowerment Centre. Headquartered in a space provided by Greenwin Inc., one of Canada's leading landlords and property managers, the centre allows Spider and his team of mentors to work with up to 60 youths a day.
"We are actually changing lives," said Jones. "Because these kids now have a place to come, they have a place to be mentored, they have a place to hone their skills. These kids need that strong mentorship that we provide."
"Spider does amazing work and he does it very well," added Rick Taylor, Canadian Urban Landscape Painter. "He changes lives for the better. Through a bit of serendipity Spider's charity auction also changed mine. Donating a couple of my paintings to the fundraiser brought Owner and Gallery Director, Donna Child and the ARTWORLD FINE ART GALLERY team into my life. Since, they have been my representatives; my work has reached numerous new collections including that of the Ontario Government. Spider has generously called me his 'favourite Canadian artist.' Thank you Mr. Jones!"
Featuring acclaimed jazz singer, Jazz FM radio host and artist Laura Fernandez as Master of Ceremonies, the event will be held in ARTWORLD's 7,200 square foot gallery and event venue in West Toronto, conveniently located just south of the Gardiner Expressway at Kipling & Evans, 365 Evans Avenue, Suite 101, Toronto, Ontario.
