After the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, many New Yorkers decided to lend a helping hand to victims in any way they could. Some donated canned goods and warm clothing.

Others took a day trip by bus to areas hit hardest by the super-storm, donating their time and energy into helping clear and repair the heaps of rubble strewn across waterfront neighborhoods. Unfortunately, there is yet much to be done in terms of rebuilding and moving on from what many believe to be a living nightmare.

While many of us may find it difficult to clear an entire day of work and errands- even though for a good cause- there are other ways of helping that won’t require quite as much time or effort. For example, there are many fundraising functions that one can attend where all proceeds will go towards funding projects helping to rebuild what Sandy has destroyed.

This week we have such a function that not only will allow you to do your part in helping those in need, but also allow you to enjoy the works of 20 accomplished and highly skilled artists.

This Wednesday evening at 6:30pm a silent art auction will be held in a Soho loft featuring not only great works, but also live music and drinks. The informal soirée will be featuring works donated by nearly two-dozen artists, all up for auction.

The $20 donation at the door, along with the money raised from the auction art, will all go towards the New York Cares Organization (Sandy Relief Program). This is a great chance to support your fellow New Yorkers forced to spend this holiday season cleaning up the wreckage of their homes, and to also show your support for the arts.

Here is the official invitation:
