Plazm magazine art director & Liquid Agency creative director Joshua Berger was in a serious bicycle accident last May, and sustained a TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury). Josh’s friends are bringing folks together for a fundraiser party packed with general festive goodness and original artwork. Join us for an afternoon of friends and music, featuring Rebecca Gates of the Spinanes, e*rock, and more! With food, wine, coffee, and Fort George Brewing beer.
Come celebrate, but make sure not to miss out on the Art Dash, emceed by the one-and-only AC Dickson. This isn’t your typical auction! Buy a numbered ticket for $100 and browse through the 100 original artworks displayed at PICA. When your number is called, you’ll get to take home the work of your choosing. Cross your fingers that your number gets called first!

Josh continues to recover, and his progress is moving right along. He has just started workingten hours a week and even — wait for it — has doctor’s approval to ride his bike. His family has received incredible support of all kinds from friends, family, and community, but they’ve experienced medical expenses and a significant loss of income. Back when Josh’s friends and family first began planning this event, they didn’t know when or whether Josh would able to walk or work, much less show up at his own party. His recovery is going well, so he’ll be there to say “hi” to everyone who comes out.
