Urgent Appeal For Funds for the Laser Eagles Art Guild

Dear Friends,

Since 2004 the Laser Eagles Art Guild has been providing support and opportunities to artists with limited speech and/mobility to produce and exhibit their artwork.

As a community based arts guild we depend on the generous contributions of our supporters. We have assembled a great team and now operate 3 weekly sessions across the Greater Toronto Area. Virtually all funds raised by the Laser Eagles Art Guild go directly towards programming needs. We are proud of having done so much with such a limited budget.

We have made big strides over the past year maintaining and developing new strategic alliances and community partnerships with The West Toronto Diabetes Education Centre, the Northern District Public Library, The 519, Anne Johnson, CDI College, HEAT, Evanov Radio, Katika, the Art Gallery of Ontario and have developed new relationships with many organizations such as Safehaven, the Ontario College of Art and Design University (OCADU), YWCA, the Abilities Arts Festival, Creative Spirit and George Brown College.

We are delighted to have been chosen as a community partner for a new and innovative program at OCADU, supporting 4th year students in obtaining hands on community arts experience during this upcoming summer.  We are ready to launch a new innovative online storefront in the next few weeks. This storefront will enable us to sell our art in many formats and will contribute to the sustainability and growth of the Laser Eagles. Through this storefront Laser Eagles Art Guild and Communities Advancing Valued Environments artists, volunteers, art coordinators and supporting community artists alike will be able to promote and sell their work while making key connections within the community. With a current exhibition at Sherway Gardens, across from the Lululemon store, an upcoming exhibition this fall at The 519 and a permanent exhibition to be displayed at the YWCA we don’t want to stop now!

Today, we are urgently appealing to you for financial help to assist at this crucial time and keep the Laser Eagles Art Guild running!

Please donate generously and champion for us by passing on this message to your respective networks. Donations can be made online at http://www.canadahelps.org/CharityProfilePage.aspx?charityID=s89809
Thank you for support,

The Laser Eagles Art Guild
