Art for Change: The Auction to Benefit Persad Center

Help us celebrate another great year of our signature fundraising event, Art for Change!

**Please note that general admission tickets will go on sale sometime in March! Stay tuned!**


We will be auctioning over 200 donated works of art in both verbal and silent auctions. Each purchase supports Persad Center's life-changing counseling and support services to the LGBTQ+ community and those impacted by HIV/AIDS. In addition to appreciating and bidding on the wonderful art, guests will also be able to bid on exciting gift baskets and enjoy food from a dozen of Pittsburgh's finest restaurants.


Underwriters Circle tickets are on sale now for guests who want the VIP experience. Underwriters enjoy premium benefits such as:
- recognition on our printed invitations
- 4 hours of open bar
- an exquisite light supper provided by Girasole
- free parking at the event
- exclusive invitation to the Underwriters Circle Party in April at Nova Place where VIP guests can honor the artists and preview the art to be auctioned
- and more!
