HINT MINT Presents: The Art For Awareness Event

Benefiting the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer: Thursday, Oct. 21st

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - October 19, 2010) - Hint Mint is hosting an art opening + fundraiser for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer at their Downtown LA headquarters on Thursday, Oct. 21st. The event features a preview of 14 original paintings being auctioned for charity, a Speakeasy Poker room, Re-Gifting Raffle, and an open bar sponsored by Blue Ice Vodka and Hansen's Natural Sodas. 

The artists have all created pieces inspired by the theme of breast cancer awareness, and generously donated them to the cause. Participating artists include Shag (Josh Agle) and Lola, whose paintings are featured on the new Hint Mint limited edition tins ($0.35 from each Art For Awareness tin sold is donated to Avon Walk). 

Also participating are renowned artists Ana Bagayan, Bob Dob, Tiffany Liu and more; many of whom will be in attendance at the event. Hint Mint is providing computers to open the eBay bidding on the charity auction, which starts at the event and closes Oct. 28th.

"Hint Mint has raised over $25,000 to help fight breast cancer, and we'd love to raise another $10,000 by the end of October. Art and philanthropy are two of our biggest passions, and the Art For Awareness program really articulates our ideals," says Cooper Bates, co-founder and VP.

Event tickets are $25 and include open bar, $5 in chips for Speakeasy Poker, and a gift set of Hint Mints. 100% of ticket sales go to Avon Walk.
