REVOLUTION, Fort Lauderdale will be hosting “For the Love of Pete;” a night of art, music, birthday celebration and good times to benefit our good friend and local artist, Peter Giovenco (www.petergiovenco.com). In the last decade, Pete has become one of the most talented, well known artists and metal sculptors in South Florida and a vital member of the growing local art scene.
In October 2005, Peter was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor and has since undergone surgery, daily radiation and chemotherapy. As he fights this battle, he is no longer able to create his visionary sculptures along with modern furniture and incredible commissioned works.
The local art and entertainment community is joining forces to help Pete through this difficult time by holding a fundraising event which will include a silent art auction, featuring fine works by local and other national artists, from 4:00 PM until midnight, entertainment will be provided by some of the hottest bands in South Florida.
All of the artwork and entertainment is being donated by the artists and performers, with the proceeds to benefit Peter’s living and medical expenses until he overcomes this disease and re-claims his place in the art community. Find it in your heart to take a stand, join this effort and For the Love of Pete, let him know he is not alone in his struggle.
