Awareness with Art – Voting ends July 31, 2014


Awareness with Art is an inaugural program that pulls together local Jacksonville artists, charities, and businesses to raise money for those who need it most in our community. A local artist will paint a BUZZ box to reflect their personal style of work; the partnering charity’s logo will also be placed on the box.
Aging True’s box is at Bailey’s Powerhouse Gym’s Atlantic Beach location.

Vote for Aging True’s box here!
