Vanguard Properties Artists in Residence - An Evening of Art and Fashion to Benefit Habitat for Humanity, Greater San Francisco
Posted by Mitch Laufer — August 9, 2012
Vanguard properties, one of the fastest growing real estate brokerages in San Francisco, hosted an evening of art and fashion to benefit Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco. The event was sponsored by Vanguard’s Principal, James Nunemacher, and co-chaired by exhibiting artists Erika Burke and Lynn Brei, both agents at Vanguard Properties. The resident artists and fashion designers, all Vanguard Properties agents and/or employees, showcased and sold their works of art and fashion with 30% of the proceeds benefitting Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco.
A silent auction was also held during the festivities where 100% of the proceeds from the sale of art and many objects of desire were purchased. Attendees had choices of hotel stays to cosmetic treatments and of course, all art was donated by the artists in residence.
In addition to art, there was also a fashion show orchestrated by yet another Vanguard agent. Jen Fritz, owner/designer of Warrior Within who put together an amazing show using all Vanguard Agents as models with their escorts while showcasing her creations.
Having raised in excess of $10,000.00 For Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco, the successful evening is the first of what Vanguard plans to make an annual fund raising event.
