Art Auction to benefit Phoenixville Women’s Outreach: August 8-15, 2020

Colored pencil and ink by Dreana Roberts

With the pandemic and stay-at-home orders, we have had to truly get creative in figuring out ways to raise awareness and funds for our non-profit helping women move from crisis to independence. It has became very clear that our need will only grow as the days pass with businesses closed and unemployment growing. Our team has been hard at work figuring out the best solution and has decided on a new and exciting venture – an online and live-stream Art Auction including both new and up-cycled pieces!

We were inspired by the acts of kindness happening all around us and felt that hosting a fundraiser that benefits our non-profit should also help others in our community if possible. (Similar to our Charity T-Shirt Drive where we gave portions of every shirt sold to the PXV Food Drive!) We are hopeful that many artists with local small businesses will get involved in this event so we made an option for them to consign their works of art and receive funds from this as well. Please consider if you, or any friends, have any art you’d like to donate or consign for this fundraiser. Types and mediums of art accepted into the auction, and the form to submit art, is below.

Thank you for always supporting our mission to help women break the cycle of poverty and dependence and move towards self-sufficiency. During these tough times, we hope you can take time to see the beauty that exists all around you in art of many forms. “Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time” – Thomas Merton

We look forward to “seeing” you at the Art Auction!

Phoenixville Strong T-Shirt Sales

With CoVid-19 and having to cancel our April and May fundraisers, Phoenixville Women’s Outreach began looking for a way to both secure funding and support our local community. We found an awesome, local, veteran-owned t-shirt company who designed a shirt for us (Check out Frag Out Clothing, Co.) and decided the proceeds should benefit our non-profit, as well as the local community food drive because we are #InThisTogetherPXV.

Check out the shirt and order yours today. We are Phoenixville Strong!

#GivingTuesdayNow: 5-5-20

In response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19, the team behind #GivingTuesday has designated May 5, 2020 as #GivingTuesdayNow. On this global day of giving and unity we can come together to show generosity and support for the causes and organizations we believe in. 

#GivingTuesdayNow is an opportunity for people around the world to stand together in unity–to use their individual power of generosity to remain connected and heal. 

Kentucky Derby Fundraiser: Cancelled

Sadly, this signature fundraiser for our non-profit has been CANCELLED. While we are hopeful that the world will be in a healthier place by May, the official Kentucky Derby race has been moved to Saturday, September 5, 2020. We are working internally to determine the best approach for our non-profit regarding this fundraiser and we will update the community regarding this event if it will be re-scheduled. Thank you!

*If you are able, please consider donating on our website to help support our non-profit continue the work of supporting women in need during this difficult time. Thank you.
