Thanks to everyone from PAC who donated photographs, volunteers, PAC Sponsor Vivyx Printing, and Value Art Framing
PAC hosted a silent auction benefit for Down Syndrome Network at this year’s Maricopa County Home and Garden show! Every photograph was bid on and sold! It was an amazing three days.
PAC Members’ images were professionally printed by Vivyx Printing, beautifully framed by Value Art, and displayed throughout the three day show at the University of Phoenix Stadium from July 18th through the 20th. American Furniture, a vendor that saw PAC setting up, even donated furniture so there would be a rest area for people to relax and enjoy the photos! Thank you to everyone who donated their services, merchandise, and time.
This was an amazing event and we hope you’ll participate with us next time as PAC Gives Back!!
