Categories: Events

From the Admin: I participated and sold my piece in 2009 and it’s well organized and can be recommended.  Good cause and money raised directly benefits BaltimoreStation.ORG, if any one has a question or 2, wants to donate please leave a comment below.

We would like to thank you for your support and participation in re-stART with ART, last year’s Veteran’s Day program presented by The Baltimore Station (TBS). This art show and auction for, by and about the residents of TBS was a great success. We raised over $20,000. Additionally, 54 artists participated and featured nearly 200 pieces of work including paintings, photography, and jewelry.

Building upon last year’s success, we are excited to announce plans for the 2nd annual re-stART with ART Veteran’s Day event, which again will be held on Wednesday, November 10, 2010 to raise money for residential therapy programs, including art and music. We hope you will consider supporting this event and donating your artwork for the auction again this year. Please remember, this donation is a tax?deductible contribution based on your valuation of the art work.

Did you know?

TBS serves over 250 men annually; mostly veterans who have served our country in a foreign war and have become homeless primarily due to addiction and chronic substance abuse. Recent census data shows that Baltimore is home to nearly 5,500 homeless drug?dependent men and has close to 60,000 additional addicts, who will meet a similar fate without programs like those offered at TBS.

We get results!

TBS has a very successful track record. It is one of only two long-term therapeutic recovery programs in Baltimore and the only one where residents stay beyond 12 months. Long?term focus has resulted in real success – 67% of the residents complete the program and go on to lead productive lives!

How do we do this?

Recovery is the central goal of our program. More than simply the cessation of drugs or alcohol, we describe recovery as the adoption of a focused lifestyle that incorporates personal responsibility, improved decision making and a shift in the way men perceive themselves, their actions and their substance. Our residents learn that it was their actions, their choices and their lifestyle that led to their addictions.

Please join us for this special event as it promises to be an evening of socializing, music, food, fun and a great opportunity to purchase quality functional and non?functional art at reasonable prices; all for a good cause. For more info, visit  www.baltimorestation.org.

Sincerely, Alex J. Kramer
