On March 23, the Graduate Women in Business (GWIB) hosted a sale of all of the Darden Art Project (DART) photos. DART is an initiative that highlights the Darden community’s global experiences, founded in fall of 2008 by Chriss Pagitsas (MBA ’09). Darden community members are invited to submit photographs of places and people they have visited around the world. Top photographs are chosen as winners and displayed on Darden’s hallway walls throughout the year before being sold to benefit local charities. All money collected from the sale this year was donated to the Shelter for Help in Emergency and WAGiLabs.
Following the sale, GWIB hosted a Cold Call with delicious food, drinks and company to honor UVA female pioneers in preparation for Women’s History Month.
Kathryn Fox, a member of GWIB and one of the DART sale managers shared, “This sale was a great way to both showcase two wonderful nonprofits that help women and girls in the Charlottesville community and also to emphasize the global culture at Darden. It was amazing to see the Darden community’s interest in supporting DART, WagiLabs, and the Shelter for Help in Emergency.”
Twenty seven photos were sold at the March 23 event, raising about $1500 for the Shelter for Help in Emergency and WAGiLabs. If you didn’t make it to the sale and would like to purchase one of the photos still available, check out those still available for purchase. If you have questions or are interested in purchasing one of the photos, please contact Kathryn Fox at FoxK17@darden.virginia.edu.
