Tom Maniaci is the creative force behind Art of Giving. Now in its 10th year, the fundraiser benefited The Pink Fund – which was also the designated charity for Art of Giving’s inaugural year. The event was held at Vinotecca in Birmingham and featured signature “pink” cocktails, live and silent auctions, a raffle, and fashions by Matt Richmond's Paper Dress Code. A paint-by-number canvas of "Pink Cadillac" songstress Aretha Franklin was auctioned for $1,450. At the end of the evening, over $17,000 was raised for The Pink Fund, which provides financial support to breast cancer patients.
