To The Editor:
Many years ago I helped organize an art exhibition and silent auction to benefit CRAS, our local AIDS-support organization. When we started this event we didn’t anticipate its tremendous popularity and its impact on artists and art enthusiasts.
As the event grew, we auctioned around 100 works of art each year. When CRAS folded, the event stopped but many people told me that they missed it and the Roxbury Arts Group (RAG) decided to reorganize it as a RAG benefit with some of the proceeds going back to the donating-artists.
