Planet Altered http://wutc.org en Planet Altered’s CAFE Grant Series Helps Teachers, Too http://wutc.org/post/planet-altered%E2%80%99s-cafe-grant-series-helps-teachers-too <p>For the last couple of years, the Planet Altered Gallery on Chattanooga&rsquo;s Southside has held fundraising events called CAFE Grant Suppers.&nbsp; At these events, people pay $12 for dinner.&nbsp; During the dinner, artists and creative people who could use extra money to fund their work give pitches.&nbsp; People listen to the pitches, vote, and then the winning artist receives most of the money people paid for dinner&ndash;often several hundred dollars total.&nbsp; It&rsquo;s a way for the Southside community to gather, enjoy food and fun, and support a local artist.</p> Mon, 27 Feb 2012 19:33:58 +0000 Mary Helen Miller 2472 at http://wutc.org
