It looked like a scene from "The Artist" as more than 150 guests dressed in black and white clothes crowded the Clear Space Theatre Sunday for a cocktail reception and a chance to snag some great art.
The Black & White Beach Ball 2012 featured an auction of works by 25 invited artists, many represented by Rehoboth Beach galleries such as Philip Morton Gallery, Gallery 50, and Ward Ellinger Gallery. With support from presenting sponsor PNC Wealth Management, the event raised more then $15,000 for CAMP Rehoboth.
Washington, D.C. based artist Brian Petro was happy to contribute one of his works to the auction. "I love vacationing in Rehoboth Beach, and I have been a supporter of CAMP Rehoboth for nearly 10 years," said Petro.
CAMP Rehoboth is the gay and lesbian community center for Rehoboth Beach, Del. For more than two decades, CAMP Rehoboth has worked to "create a more positive” relationship among all the people of the Rehoboth Beach area. Its activities, events, and programs have greatly added to Rehoboth Beach's appeal as a top gay-friendly destination.
