Last week, I attended the 'GET:ART' charity event with Ben, Bill and Yinghua. GET:ART is an annual art sale sponsored by Bonhams and Butterfields, world renowned auction house. 100% of the proceeds from donated artwork directly benefit 'Project Angel Food', a free meal-delivery program with the mission to nourish men, women and children affected by HIV/AIDS and other serious illnesses in Los Angeles County.

The painting I graciously donated (pictured below) was already sold by the time we arrived at the event which turned out to be an extremely well recieved and festive soiree.
Mark Ryden (an esteemed and talented painter I admire) was one of the many notable talents featured in this event.

This is me at the event quietly wondering if I'll get a chance to snag some more of those tasty coconut shrimp before they run out....
