A thrilling evening at Artwork Network, a crowd buzzing with excitement and a location full of exceptional artwork--the annual Art for Life event was the place to be in the heart of the Santa Fe Arts District.

Project Angel Heart is a food delivery service providing nutritious meals for those coping with life-threatening illnesses. Founded in 1991, Project Angel Heart has grown rapidly. Raising over $800,000 in their capital campaign in 2001 to build a new kitchen for the growing clientele, the organization offers a frozen weekly meal program for those living with illness in both Denver and Colorado Springs. Project Angel Heart began when founder Charles Robbins was living in LA for awhile and returned to Denver to find friends living with AIDS wasting away before his eyes. He started Project Angel Heart as a model after the program in LA. As new drugs and programs allowed those affected by AIDS to decrease, Project Angel Heart expanded to include other life threatening illnesses such as cancer. In 1999, the organization declared they would help anyone with a life threatening illness.

Hosting events such as Dining Out for Life, Pie in the Sky, and A Taste for Life; Art for Life was an exceptional event with a large crowd enjoying the festive atmosphere, fantastic art, and jovial evening on the beautiful fall evening.
