The 2014 Alchemy Art Fundraiser was a HUGE SUCCESS. A fantastic time was had with 27 of our artists representing projects that peaked our interest and captivated all of us. Even more art projects will be involved in the Online Fundraiser. Many thanks to all the submitting artists who have worked so hard so far, but the job isn’t quite over yet. We can’t wait to see what you bring to Alchemy this year!
Didn’t make the physical fundraiser? Perhaps you did, and you want to give your favorite projects MORE MONEY! Or hey, what about those projects that didn’t make the physical fundraiser. Wanna see those?! The Online Fundraiser is happening right now and ends July 4th! Go Go GO!
Numbers and Gratitude
We had 231 unique ballots, so that’s 231 participants through the Gate who were invested in voting! Those 231 Participants donated $4,196.00 total for an average ballot amount of $18.16. We raised an additional $675.00 through the Live Auction, which means we raised a total of $4,871.00! That’s more than we’ve ever raised before! Great job, everyone!
Big appreciation goes out to the artists who donated to the auction: Michelle Waymire, Susan & Parker of Kittybear Hoops, Rebecca Scott of the Giving Bunnies, Kelly McGuire, Ash Monogue, Jay & Becca of Forged Creations, Ryan Petty, Serenity River, and Violet of the Deathcar. These artists donated not just their art, but their time to make that art, and support other Alchemy artists in the process. Thank you all so much for your gifts, and to those who bid on auction items! We hope you love whatever you scored.
To the wonderful volunteers who pulled extra time and helped bust out this great event: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Annnnnd now, numbers! Remember, this is only the tally for the physical event last night. Much fundraising still to be done in the Online Art Fundraiser! Please look forward to it!

We apologize profusely to those who weren’t in attendance and eagerly awaiting online feed. The space was too crowded and noisy to do successful interviews, though we tried. Any artist who wishes can make their own video for the online portion. These videos will be posted on each project’s Online Fundraiser page as well as to this YouTube playlist.
