Spotlight On The Greatest Party on Earth
The Artists for Humanity annual gala features student art and live performances.
On Saturday April 26, 2014, Artists for Humanity hosted their 9th annual fundraising gala, The Greatest Party on Earth, at their eco-friendly, South Boston headquarters. The organization works with local teens by teaching, employing, and empowering the young artists to be self-sufficient and promote and sell their works.
VIP hour featured teen art on display (many pieces snatched up by collectors), gourmet eats served up by chef Lydia Shire, silent and live auctions, an inspiration movie about the org, and speeches by Mayor Marty Walsh and AFH founder Susan Rodgerson.
Other gadabouts of note include AFH’s design director, Claudia De Piante Vicin, George Foreman III, Beth Israel president Kevin Tabb, Lisa Tung, director of curatorial programs at Mass College of Art and event co-chair, and Millennium Partners exec Smaiyra Million.
The party continued downstairs with live music, some serious dancing with “So You Think You Can Dance” winner, Russell Ferguson and his dance troupe, and a live acrobatic performance by hunky and handsome athletes (and their one lady member).
