The silent auction at the Glass Vegas Expo is to benefit our Injured Artist fund. 100% of the proceeds of the auction will go directly to the fund, there are no fees. You can participate by donating pieces to the auction, or bidding. The injured artist recipient can be an artist with a physical injury that keeps the artist from working, or an indirect injury that also would keep the artist from working, like theft, fire, etc. An artist needs to be a part of or nominated by the Glass Vegas Family. Past recipients have been the family of an artist that passed away, an artist that had his torches stolen, one who had a large amount of work broken and one that broke his wrist. The more you contribute or bid on, the more we can help the community! Injured artist fund solely depends on the artists to donate work to be auctioned off on the Glass Vegas show floor. Please contact us if you would like to donate a piece, or give it to J.D. Maplesden at the show, as he will be walking the floor collecting donations for the auction. Be a part of our mission and make a difference!
