A one night special event at Ida Lee Park in Leesburg, VA
All proceeds go directly towards funding art therapy services in Uvalde, TX

Our Mission

The Artistic Fuel Foundation seeks to raise a minimum of $100,000 for the creation of art therapy services for the Uvalde community. Join us as we act in solidarity and with compassion for our Texas neighbors during this difficult time.

Please join us for the “Artistic Fuel Ties That Bind”, a one-night special event including live music, food trucks (Hershey’s, Bilstad’s Beignets, Generations Gourmet, 7 Moltin) arts activities with local art therapists, panel discussion and an outdoor film screening of “MASS” to support the Uvalde

If you can’t attend in person we encourage you click the donate button and participate from afar!

All proceeds, from tickets and individual donations, will support arts therapy programming to assist community healing. Please help by donating and attending!

We do not recommend the film portion of the event for families with young children. While the content is not violent, we respectfully caution viewers to be aware that the subject matter may be disturbing.

The Artistic Fuel Foundation is a registered 501c3, not-for-profit charitable organization. All donations are tax deductible. Thank you for your support.
