Armed with Art: Fundraiser to Keep Guns Off Campus
July 20, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm$50
Let’s make gun violence history!
The League of Women Voters of St. Petersburg invites you to a memorable evening of art, history and wine, benefiting organizations working to keep guns off campuses.
Mingle while you sip beer and wine, enjoy an array of epicurean delights, and tap your feet to live music – all to the backdrop of the St. Petersburg Museum of History’s floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the waters of beautiful Tampa Bay.
We have joined forces with our local creative community to present rousing interactive art, and an auction of visionary artwork highlighting the importance of gun safety and the devastation of gun violence.
Special appearances by Mayor Rick Kriseman, City Council Representative Lisa Wheeler-Bowman and Dr. Marjorie D. Sanfilippo of Eckerd, who will be honored for her extraordinary work to keep guns off campuses.
We hope you will join us in raising funds for the League of Women Voters of Florida’s Gun Safety Action Team and the Campaign to Keep Guns Off Campus in their tireless efforts to stamp out gun violence and keep our communities safe.
