Eight of Swords is excited to host the 2nd annual Broads for a Cause two day benefit event. This year, the proceeds will go to benefit our furry friends at the ASPCA.

The first day, Thursday, November 7th, will be a tattoo event from 12pm to 8pm. Customers can choose a design from a sheet of $100 flash, created specifically for the event by our tattoo artists. The designs will be posted to our website and appointments can be made by phone prior to the date. These designs will only be available at this special price on Thursday. The ASPCA adoption van will be parked in front of Eight of Swords during the event.

The next day, Friday, November 8th, will be group art opening and silent auction from 7pm to 11pm. Artwork from the show will be for sale by silent auction and will close at 10pm on Friday. The art will be on exhibit and we will continue to accept bids on any unsold items until December 5th. Representatives from ASPCA will have a table with information and giveaways and they will also be accepting charitable donations. Friday’s event will be sponsored by Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Harpoon Brewery, Lael Cakes and Pie Corps.

Our impressive roster of amazing women artists for Friday’s silent auction includes: Addie Juell, Amanda Grace Leadman, Annie Lloyd, Becca Gene Bacon, Betty Rose, Camila Rocha, Debra Yarian, Drew Linden, Ellen Murphy, Elvia Gezlev, Emma Griffiths, Erica Flannes, Heather Bailey, Hillary Fisher White, Holly Sullivan, Jenny Harada, Jessica Pooka Suarez, Joy Rumore, Karen Rockower Glass, Kati Vaughn, Katie Sellergren, Kirsten Wagner, Linda Wulkan, Lisa Sanditz, Magie Serpica, Megan Liu-Ramirez, Michelle Gonzalez, Mina Aoki, Nicoz Balboa, Nyahzul, Samantha Smith, Sarah Rockower, Sharon Goldberg, Sophie C'est la Vie, Stacy Martin, Stephanie Tamez, Taler Nicols, Tasha Rubinow, Tron, Viola Von Hell, Wendy Ramirez, Zoe Bean, Tara McPherson and many more.
