Saving the TaTas 2010 exceeded our expectations, both in donations and in the net proceeds for the event. Considering the event was still only an idea on August 1st we couldn't have asked for a better result. Even though we have yet to receive all funds from Silent Auction winners and cash donations are still coming in (and very welcome) from around the country we've exceeded our goal by nearly 50%.

We'll be posting details as soon as all the auction items have been paid for and other donations and event costs have been tallied.
As the event organizers, Rose and I want to personally thank those volunteers who gave their support and time to assist with event planning, set-up, staffing and more.

Our HEARTFELT THANKS to the Artists who contributed the fruits of their labors, and to the Sponsors and product donors who helped make our artist reception and raffle a big hit. Please support our sponsors and donors, without whom this event may not have been possible.

Last but certainly not least... Thank You Mary Ellen, for allowing us to completely take over Gallery 225. We sincerely hope the people who attended (and those who couldn't) come back to your establishment to view your eclectic selection of art objects, and that they find many perfect gifts for the upcoming holidays... or perhaps gifts for themselves.


  1. Thank you Dennis, Rose and Mary Ellen. What a wonderful event. I am looking forward to next years already.

  2. It was my great pleasure to work with Dennis and Rose, two consummate professionals!! I'm happy that the gallery served our purposes so well.

    I also enjoyed meeting Cindi and Amy and working once again with Cynthia. All of you doll artists should be proud of your support of this event. Your work is amazing.

    I also would like to thanks all of the other artists who submitted art work and other merchants who so generously gave us merchandise and gift cards. What a wondrous community we live in!

    Congratulations and thanks to everybody.
