A Thomas Crown Affair

“A Thomas Crown Affair” is the theme of our first annual WellSky Foundation Gala, which is a fundraiser to support the WellSky Foundation and its mission to improve the quality of life for vulnerable populations by removing socioeconomic barriers to health and wellness.

Inspired by artists who support vulnerable populations or who themselves have faced adversity, we wish for their stories to be heard and celebrated. With our feature artist Jeff Hanson and art from ArtLifting, Hephzibah Children’s Association, and many more, we promise a sophisticated, art-filled evening of cocktails, live and silent auctions, dinner, and experiences Thomas Crown himself would endorse.

Because our communities need support through the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we also invite you to donate to the WellSky Foundation today. Make your donation here.
