Given CDC, as well as state and local authority mandates on gatherings over the next eight weeks, it is necessary that we cancel our 18th Annual Spring Fling planned for May 2. We do not envision rescheduling given this uncertain moment. With this ever changing situation, our priority is putting everyone's health and well-being first.
The countdown is on for Locust Projects 18th Annual Spring Fling Fundraiser on May 2nd from 7pm – 10pm at the historic Moore Building in the Miami Design District. Featuring delicious bites and sips, music, silent art auction, artist editions, raffle, pop-ups, and more!
Guests are invited to Rock the Dot! as they mingle with Miami’s most influential art patrons and community and business leaders for a night of fun and fundraising for Locust Projects—Miami’s foremost incubator of art and ideas.
For information on Corporate Sponsorships and how to join the Host Committee, contact email@example.com or call 305-576-8570.
Proceeds from Spring Fling support programming at Locust Projects, a 501c3 not-for-profit organization. A portion of your donation may be tax deductible.
