Ronald McDonald House Charities of Spokane is relocating downtown’s heart sculptures to more secure locations following vandalism that damaged several of the pieces.
Spokane Veteran’s Memorial Arena, Spokane Convention Center, River Park Square and the Davenport hotels are among the new homes for the 24 hearts.
The Give Love Public Art Project & Benefit is the third art project facilitated by Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Inland Northwest (RMHC InNW). This project is being presented in partnership with STCU.
There are 28 completed hearts, all of them beautiful and unique, which will be displayed in separate locations throughout downtown Spokane. The fiberglass hearts, measuring 42” x 31”, were all designed and completed by local artists. The hearts will be on display from November 2018 through mid-February after which they will be auctioned off at the Give Love Gala on Friday, March 1, 2019.
Local businesses and individuals can sponsor a heart for $3,000 for the duration of the time they are displayed on the downtown streets. Sponsorship includes the sponsor’s name displayed with the heart, sponsorship recognition in promotional materials including the auction booklet and signage and a table for ten at the Give Love Gala.
RMHC InNW will receive all the proceeds from heart sponsorships and the Give Love Gala. These funds will benefit Inland Northwest families with critically ill or injured children.
