2nd Annual MODUS UNION 2010
Presented by Labels For Love
CALL to ARTISTS:
Event: MODUS UNION: An exclusive evening of Fashion, Art and Philanthropy!
Labels for Love founder Mary Amons created “Modus Union” this one of a kind unique event to collaborate our active philanthropic, political, and artistic communities within the Nation's Capital. Modus Union was formed from two words that represent unification with positive intent. The Washington, DC area is the leading world capital and we are seeing the combination of artistic talent and a youthful energy not seen since the Kennedy era. The time has come to collaborate with these disparate groups of influence to showcase opportunities in an effort to make a positive social and philanthropic impact by maximizing our impact on the Nation's Capital and its global influence. Labels For Love beneficiary partner this year is Fran Drescher and her Cancer Schmancer Foundation. Cancer Schmancer is dedicated to saving women's lives through early detection and prevention of cancer. As you may know, Fran Drescher is a 10-year uterine cancer survivor and a leading advocate for the early detection of women's cancer. Fran and her Foundation are continuing to make a major global impact, through sharing her personal story as well as educating women on the causes of cancers and the importance and methods of early detection

AVEONE of both Art Whino and Destroy Rebuild NYC, has organized an art auction wherein each artist donates orginal paintings and 100% of the proceeds generated during their sale go directly to supporting Jesus Saves' legal expenses. So far, many artists; Col, Matt Siren, TMNK, and AVEONE have participated, and we hope that you will too!
