The Art of Improving Lives - San Francisco Bay
Thursday, July 26, 2012 from 6:30 PM to 10:00 PM (PDT)
Please join CoachArt in celebrating the Art of Improving Lives.
CoachArt was founded in 2001 with a mission to improve the quality of life for chronically ill children and their siblings through free arts and athletics lessons. We established an office in Oakland in the summer of 2011. In the past year we have provided free lessons in art, dance, music and sports to over 100 Bay Area youth.
To celebrate this success and share CoachArt's mission with the community, our Board of Directors invites you to 'The Art of Improving Lives', an evening of art and music in the heart of Uptown Oakland's Arts District.
This event will feature art created by CoachArt students, as well as the current gallery exhibit. There will be opportunities to learn more about CoachArt's local programming and ways to get involved with the organization.
If you are not yet familiar with CoachArt, this event will introduce you to our work in the Bay Area. If you are a current supporter, partner or volunteer, this event will celebrate your help in building a successful first year of CoachArt services. We look forward to seeing you there and sharing in the exciting new programs happening with CoachArt Bay Area!
Complementary food, drink and valet. Please RSVP.
Thank you to our generous sponsors at Galante Vineyards, Drake's Brewing Co., Barbara Llewellyn Catering and Douglas Parking.

When & Where
CoachArt improves the quality of life for children with chronic and life-threatening illnesses and their siblings by providing free lessons in the arts and athletics.
CoachArt matches patients for weekly lessons with qualified volunteer mentors. This unique program offers a creative outlet to distract patients from the pain, therapies and isolation often associated with chronic illness and provides a sense of normalcy. Through the arts and recreation, siblings and patients alike have increased confidence, hope, and self-esteem.
CoachArt's programs serve youth between the ages of six and eighteen.
