These weeks were crazy with the countdown to the Starving Artist Games on Saturday! On Tuesday, I was putting together the finishing touches on the event making sure everything was in our budget and that there was nothing missing from the activities to the restrooms. There is a lot of behind the scenes action that is going into this event. The location itself was a hassle just since it takes many permits and licenses to gain access to a site. And thank the lord for volunteers!! Events like these would never be possible without the help from the locals. I came in again on Thursday to help create the games for the event at MINT gallery. MINT gallery is the co-sponsor of this event. We are hoping to total around $3,000 revenue form the event which will help these organizations out tremendously. I had to do some major shopping for supplies, some of the supplies was for the heavy metal cake walk! I walked out of Target with 8 boxes of cake and even more tubs of icing. The lady in the checkout line probably thought I was crazy…haha! On Saturday, the day started really early. At 10am I arrived, but it seemed as if the day had started way earlier! The event was hosted at the intersection of Irwin and Krog, a nice large plot of flat gravel. It was probably about 95 degrees the entire time of setting up, and we went through many cups of water. One of the volunteers happened to be Belinda, a recent Agnes Scott grad who majored in studio art! It was so nice to see a familiar face! She was running the Bingo booth, which I won twice at and got a prize of art! (pictures coming soon!) I was in charge of one of the fun games for kids, it was nice to sit back and watch people enjoy an event that you know you helped support and create. From beginning to end, the Starving Artist Games truly were a success!
