To begin with, we cannot believe that it has now been over a year since our first AFI event, and are thrilled with how far we have come.

What started as a small yet exciting idea turned into recurring events and plans for expansion, which is more than we ever could have hoped for.

We extend a huge thank you to everyone involved with our organization, and to everyone who has supported us.

Earlier this month, we were thrilled to hold our third Artists for Impact event. This time, we had a few exciting additions to our event: DJ sets by Elle Katsaros between live performances, raffles, and a costume contest!

With this event, we succeeded in raising $267 for Sad Girls Club, an organization focused on providing mental health support for young women. In addition, raffles held to support the AFI cause raised $111.25 — an enormous help to our journey of becoming a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.

Thank you to everyone who came.
