FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Up On Broadway
An art show to benefit Lucie’s Place

A fundraiser event will be held at St. Michael’s Episcopal Church to
benefit the organization Lucie’s Place, a shelter for homeless
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) young adults in Central
Arkansas. The show will be held on March 9th, 2012, from 7-9PM. St.
Michael’s is located at 12415 Cantrell Rd. in West Little Rock.

Regional artists from Arkansas and also artists from Tennessee,
Mississippi and Florida will provide pieces for a silent auction. Hors
D’oeuvres, beer and wine will be provided. Tickets are $25 per person
and $45 per couple and can be obtained by calling 501-764-0237 or

Lucie's Place envisions a world in which Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and
Transgender (LGBT) young adults feel welcomed, loved, and respected at
home. In response to the disproportionate and overwhelming population
of homeless LGBT young adults in Central Arkansas, the mission of
Lucie's Place is to establish a long-term shelter for homeless LGBT
young adults, ages eighteen to twenty-four. Our goal is to provide a
safe home in which these young adults can live their lives to the
fullest while developing skills necessary for independent living.
