THANK YOU ALL for making the 7th annual Krampus Night® charity benefit extravaganza an amazing night and success!! With your help, we collected two 55-gallon drums full of toys and an two heaping shopping carts full of canned food…great job everyone! And through the generous art donations of DAMNED artists, the art auction raised $1,242 for Burners without Borders Detroit that will greatly help feed and clothe the homeless on our cold city streets
But before we continue with our thanks, we invite you to sign up to Krampus Newsletter or join the Naughty List Facebook newsgroup to keep informed of future Krampus Night events, as well as the art calls, crafting parties and bazaar opportunities.
Much deep gratitude goes to always awesome staff of Tangent Gallery / Hastings Street Ballroom for graciously hosting our event this year and allowing us to Kramp up the place, including Scott and Wizard for the amazing work!
Great thanks also goes to all the amazing artists and gingerbread house-wreckers of the Wreck The Halls® exhibition, as well as the wonderful merchants of the Naughty List Bazaar and Dee’s Hot Dogs! And much much thanks to the naughty crafting of the Krampus Recrafting Antidecoration Party (KRAP) for the awesomely disturbing “holiday” crafts that decorated the venue!
A hearty bow goes to the hilarious and talented performers of the Christmahanakwanza Variety Show Spectacular…Satori Circus, Lushes Lamoan, Bootsie La Fontaine, Scott Dambacher, Magenta DeMure and Konrad Lee, Lounge singer Extraordinaire! And a hearty howl into the air goes to the big man himself, Krampus, conjured to life by the talented Luke MacGilvray!
Massive love and appreciation also goes to all the volunteers who helped us put everything together, to David Anthony for the awesome photobooth and to Kyleigh and Indio for running the art auction! And not to forget Gretch and Benjamin for keeping things running all night in the front!
And most of all….THANK YOU who attended and made this all one fantastic night of fun and naughtiness! We look forward to doing this again next year. And once more, join our newsletter or Facebook group to keep informed!
