All good cause of YOU!


The event was a complete success!

And we would like to thank all of YOU for making it so. We had a great turn out and some awesome artwork as well. People were lined up outside the theater before the doors even opened! DJ Justin was spinning the "wheels of steel" the entire night as Baby Ruths and Popcorn flew off the shelves! Mom's were selling raffles and taking donations. And friends jumped in front of traffic bringing in people at the last minute!

We would like to thank everyone that helped, friends, family and loved ones who made everything go as smooth as possible. With the money raised we are going to be able to help so many teachers and lots of kids too. SO COOL!

I hope everyone had a great night, I will post pictures as they come in.

Feel free to drop us a line or even feedback about the event at info@ttgcharity.com

Keep checking back for all the other artwork at the show that wasn't part of the online auction!

Thanks again,
Ry-Ry

Helpin' Out Da' Kids!

Give to DonorsChoose

DonorsChoose.org has been selected for the 1st ever TTG Charity event! You can read all about it on their website! But for those of you who don't want to do all that clicking I will describe briefly what it is!

At Donors Choose teachers post their supply needs for their classrooms and then DonorsChoose.org puts together the cost of all the supplies needed! That amount is posted on their site. People then can donate what ever amount they wish till the entire amount is reached! At that time DonorsChoose.org buys the supplies requested (at wholesale prices) and sends it to the teachers! It's great because it is a real direct way to help teachers and their students.

So here is where TTG Charity event comes in!

All proceeds made from this event will be donated to different local teachers in high poverty areas. We are going to focus our attention on teachers who need art supplies and other tools to stimulate creativity! As we all know the arts in public schools are one of the first things to be dropped from the curriculum.

So save up your loose change for NOV 15th, and lets change some kids lives!
