Art-n-Sole tickets sales announced
July 15, 2011
Platinum Lounge announces its first Art-n-Sole benefit that will take place on Saturday, Aug. 27, at Jupiter Bowl, 1090 Center Street, at Kimball Junction.
Art-n-Sole is an annual charity fundraiser where celebrities and guests can express themselves artistically and help children in need by artistically customizing their own blank pair of TOMS Shoes.
The goal of the event is to raise funds for the Chris Maddux Film Scholarship while supporting TOMS One for One movement. The movement provides a pair of new shoes to a child in need with every pair of TOMS footwear purchased.
The shoes created by the celebrities will be auctioned off in September to create additional funds for the Chris Maddux Film Scholarship.
Maddux, the media and film teacher at Park City High School and founder of the Miner Film Festival, passed away in April after a battle with colon cancer.
"Chris Maddux was a teacher, mentor, friend, colleague, husband, and father," said former student Cole Sax of Unknown Productions. "(He) was a true genuine person that cared for everyone."
