Halloween has come and gone, but the impacts of the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) Cincinnati chapter
’s latest fundraiser are long lasting. The group hosted GUTS: Creatives Carving for Kids
at Washington Park
last month and raised nearly $10,000 for Make-A-Wish Southern Ohio
. The “pipeline of eligible children” continues to grow with the proximity of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital
“We raised more than enough for one wish,” said Jay Shifman of Make-A-Wish Shifman said noting that they work to grant the wish of every child facing a life threatening illness in our community.
AIGA to surpassed fundraising goal of $8,000 (the average cost of one wish) by $1,200.
The winning Team LPK carved “Haunted OTR" four pumpkins, side-by-side, depicting the local streetscape.
“GUTS is a part of AIGA Cincinnati’s larger ‘Design for Good’ initiative,” said Phil Rowland, architect and AIGA member. “We believe design can make a difference in our community.”
