With performances by Colbie Caillat and a slew of music industry executives in attendance, Artworks for the Cure raises much-needed cash for the fight against leukemia, cancer and AIDS.
The T.J Martell Foundation raised over $1 million for leukemia, cancer and AIDS research at Artworks for the Cure, which became the West Coast office’s largest event in the organization's history.
The dinner and contemporary art auction took place Oct. 11 at Santa Monica's Barker Hangar where a VIP reception to meet the artists kicked off the Artworks for the Cure three-day event.
Singer-songwriter Colbie Caillat entertained the hundreds in attendance to honor Daniel Ek, CEO and founder of Spotify; Troy Carter, Lady Gaga’s manager and founder and CEO of Atom Factory; Rob Wells, president of global digital business for Universal Music Group; and Catherine An, founder of An Catering and Tiato Restaurant, who also catered the event.
Since its foundation in 1975, T.J Martell has raised over $260 million, including $27 million dollars for pediatric cancer research at Children's Hospital, Los Angeles.
