In November 2015, four friends went out to dinner and they came up with an idea for a party that would bring everyone in their work community together with the Venice community. Not the usual booze and schmooze event like so many industry parties - but instead, a party for a cause. The purpose of the party would be to help others in need and who live among us. We called the event: 100 Pieces. It was a huge success and we are doing it again!
T H E C O N C E P T
Creativity for good.
We are asking all agencies, production companies, artists, and makers that work and thrive within our community, to donate one (or a few) piece/s of their personal art, for a silent auction.
The auction will be held in a gallery space with music, drinks, and all your fellow colleagues from the advertising community, along with local artists. We will all come together in solidarity to help those in need.
All proceeds from the auction will go directly to help a small, local, grassroots, not for profit organization located in Venice called Safe Place for Youth (S.P.Y.)
We hope that you, or anyone at your company can donate a piece of personal art for our auction - it can be photography, a painting, a sculpture, a silkscreen, a piece of furniture, ceramics, etc.
All donations are tax deductible.

We are a scrappy bunch who at the heart of it all, like to create stuff, make shit happen, & always try to do some good.
We also love a good party.
There are four of us. It doesn’t matter who we are really but we all at one time or another worked within the advertising world – a few of us still do.
The advertising industry - despite its insanity & fickleness, fierce competition, & rivalry – there is a strong, passionate underlining that not only is bursting with amazing personal creativity, but also has heart to give.
An event that unites the industry for the common good.
No competition, no rivalry, no bullshit.
Everyone coming together, having some drinks & some laughs, and sharing our personal creativity for one night for all to see, & to have our collective art help those in need.
So, that is who we are, and that is what are going to do. It is very nice to meet you and we hope you can join us.
