One day left until the Greatest Party On Earth!

The entire Epicenter is buzzing with preparation and setup for the Greatest Party On Earth. Do you have your ticket yet??

We're hard at work transforming the space to be the greatest party experience of your life! Hanging disco balls, printing & applying our jellyfish wallpaper, finishing touches on the Re:Vision furniture, wiring the lighting decorations, setting up the AFH art store, measuring the walls for artwork and so much MORE! Like Kershner Williams said in yesterday's blog post, "It gets better and better every year!" Here are some "behind the scenes" photos of our amazing team preparing for the Greatest Party On Earth:

By attending our annual fundraiser, Greatest Party On Earth, not only will you party with Boston's best entertainment, food and wine, you will also be supporting our arts program that provides jobs and training for hundreds of Boston's under-served teens each year!

Get your tickets today:

Fun fact of the day: AFH built the Epicenter with windows facing north and south because the northern light is the most preferred lighting for artists.

***Reminder: Gazelle will be recycling and repurposing used handheld electronics at the night of the party, and will donate a percentage of the proceeds to Artists For Humanity. Bring those old cell phones, iPods, PDA's, and digital cameras.
