The first Artists for Cause (AFC) event took place at America Needs You‘s (an education non-profit) gala event on October 15th at Cipriani, in midtown New York.

The show included fifteen works by  accomplished artists including: Brian Novatny, Predrag Dimitrijevic, Jon Newman, Wendy Klemperer and Greg Kessler. Artists for Cause curator and co-founder Greg Kessler’s work Sasha was also sold at the event, making a notable contribution to the organization.
