|Shared Lives Studio||Shared Lives Studio is our 2013-2014 recipient! Shared Lives Studio provides individuals with different abilities the opportunity to express their creativity and share their artistic talent with our community. The artists create personalized and customized pieces of art, which you can view and even purchase (they make great gifts!).Since 2008, Shared Lives Studio has been committed to supporting people in Lucas County, Ohio, with development disabilities as they become working artists, as well as promoting their work as an increasingly important contribution to the professional art world. Some of their artwork includes prints, glass art, jewelry and more! Partnering with Chicks for Charity for the next two years will allow Shared Lives Studio to prolifically increase their awareness in the community while expanding to provide more employment opportunities for adults with different abilities and additional needs. Funds raised will help Shared Lives Studio reach their goal of developing a children’s program to help nurture the artistic talents of all children and young adults.So far, Chicks for Charity has raised over $107,000 for Shared Lives Studio, with the biggest contribution coming from our annual Chicks Mix event, bringing in over $26,000 in 2014. Over 400 Chicks come together for Chicks Mix each July. The event includes live and silent auctions, great food and live music with all proceeds benefiting Shared Lives Studio.|
