Give and Get a Chance to Receive, Too!

The Recess year-end raffle is back, just in time for the holidays! When you make a donation to Recess between now and December 31 you will be entered to win. There are plenty of levels of giving, with chances to receive everything from limited-edition works from Recess artists and staff to having your name forever immortalized on the walls of our SoHo space.

You can also make a donation in someone special’s name. This is a great holiday gesture and your loved one will receive a personalized thank you from Recess, as well as have his or her name entered into the raffle. When making your donation, please indicate your gift preferences by using the “add special instructions” section.

EVERYONE who makes a donation between now and year’s end will receive a drinkable Love Potion created by our current Session artist Leila Hekmat. This love libation, guaranteed to give you good vibrations, will be infused with the flavor and richness of Recess’ program. This is redeemable anytime at our space.  Come, pull up a chair, sip the snifter, and let’s contemplate modern love.>
