NEW YORK-The Drug Policy Alliance (DPA) raised more than $100,000 during re:FORM, an art auction and cocktail party benefit at Cheim & Read gallery in New York last week.
"Many, many thanks go out to our honorees, everyone who attended, and especially our event co-chair, George Soros, We want to express our gratitude to those who placed bids and bought art, and, of course, special thanks to the artists who donated their work," said Ethan Nadelmann, executive director of the Drug Policy Alliance. "DPA is honored to have such friends-the creators of such powerful visions- who share our understanding that the drug war is deeply, irreversibly flawed. It is indeed moving to know that they share our vision of a future where, absent harm to others, no one is punished simply for what they put into their bodies."
