As a young person, you may not feel you have much to contribute to the arts; after all, you're broke, and don't all arts organizations need money? The good news is that even a small amount of cash, like the bit you are able to spare, can
provide great assistance to many groups. Take the St. Louis Artists' Guild, for example: This nonprofit's Young Executive Advisory Board is hosting Locomotion
a fundraising event that will help the Guild continue to host arts classes and exhibits and admission to the benefit is only $25 in advance ($35 at the door). That's what you would normally spend just on cocktails alone, and with this party you get drinks, food, live music and the opportunity to participate in a silent auction (if you have some extra scratch). The impetus for the event's name is Trains: Past, Present, Future
, an exhibit on view throughout the evening (and until Saturday, October 14, actually) that explores, as its name suggests, where this mode of transport has been and where it's going. We know you
will be going to this fundraiser, which runs from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Guild (2 Oak Knoll Park, Clayton; www.stlouisartistsguild.org
); call 314-727-6266 to buy your ticket.
