This spring, in lieu of an Angel Art auction and gala, we are organizing a private sale of artwork. Resources once allocated for event space, installation, and logistics will instead be devoted directly to our mission. This streamlined iteration of Angel Art will allow critical funds to be applied where they are needed most; to the preparation and delivery of life-saving meals. Angel Art 2020 will focus on soliciting a group of carefully considered, highly coveted artists to contribute major works which will in turn be sold directly to collectors and Project Angel Food supporters.
In 1990, the organizers and supporters of Project Angel Food (founded in 1989) created Angel Art to help fund the delivery of hot meals to men and women ravaged by the AIDS crisis. Celebrities including Anthony Perkins, Berry Berenson, Mickey Rourke, Penny Marshall, and Carrie Fisher, and prominent artists such as David Hockney, Ellsworth Kelly and Roy Lichtenstein, contributed contemporary artworks for an auction that generated over $540,000 for Project Angel Food. This miracle funded 90,000 meals, helping to feed hundreds more devastated by the crisis.
In a perfect world, our services wouldn’t be needed to help those who are sick, alone, living below the poverty line, and desperately in need of the nutrition and human interaction they receive from Project Angel Food. However, the need is painfully real and Angel Art makes it possible for those waiting to come on service to receive meals when they need them most. Over the past 30 years, Angel Art has raised more than $6.5 million and funded the delivery of more than 1.3 million medically tailored meals to our most vulnerable neighbors.

On Saturday, September 12, 2020, Project Angel Food will host the 30th Annual Angel Awards Gala at its headquarters at 922 Vine Street in Los Angeles and we are delighted to announce that Grammy Award-nominated Taylor Dayne will be headlining the event.
Please join us in celebrating YOU, our many dedicated donors, friends, and volunteers. Your support has elevated Angel Awards to its prominent place on LA’s late summer social calendar. The evening is magical; the parking lot is transformed from a bustling hub that dispatches 15,000 free, medically tailored meals per week, to a chic outdoor ballroom under the stars. We couldn’t do any of it, the millions of meals or the transformation, without Angels like you.
Alongside attendees from the arts, entertainment, business and philanthropic communities, this meaningful evening is filled with celebrity presenters and memorable musical performances. You can be a part of this unforgettable evening by purchasing a ticket, table, or ad.
