West Seattle Food For Art!

April 12th WSAW, 2012

Seven West Seattle Restaurants will donate a generous percentage of proceeds to Transitional Resources’ art therapy program on the evening of Thursday, April 12 as part of the first annual Food for Art event.  Representatives from Transitional Resources will be at each restaurant, selling $5 raffle tickets for prizes donated by local artists and businesses, including event sponsor Ola Salon.  All raffle proceeds will benefit the art therapy program at Transitional Resources, a West Seattle-based non-profit mental health center serving people living with severe and persistent mental illness.

Food for Art diners are encouraged to let their servers know they support Food for Art.   

Participating restaurants include:
Circa, Fresh Bistro, Highstrike Grill, Locol Barley & Vine, Luna Park Café, West 5, and Zatz a Better Bagel.

Transitional Resources’ commends these local restaurants for their philanthropic engagement.  By contributing to Transitional Resources’ art therapy program, these businesses are helping men and women have access to a creative catalyst for healing.  The process involved in expressing one’s self artistically can help people resolve issues, as well as develop and manage their behaviors and feelings, reduce stress, and improve awareness.  Art therapy is one of many programs offered at Transitional Resources, which provides respectful, optimistic, and highly personalized care to those most in need.
