Hug Alliance's 2017 Art Auction 

Each year, Hug Alliance members partner with local artists to host art auctions in the Evansville area. The art auctions are considered to be one of Hug Alliance's main fundraisers and community outreach programs. They are open to the public and all ages are welcome!

 

All proceeds from the art auctions support Hug Alliance's mission of serving those in need within our surrounding communities. Funds raised from the art auctions have allowed us to create "blessing bags" filled with items for the homeless, build life coaching materials for distressed individuals, provide additional resources to help those in need, & support other not-for-profits, such as Habitat for Humanity, PeaceZone, & the local food bank.

If you would like to make a monetary donation, have art you wish to donate, or if you are an artist that would be interested in partnering with us, please reach out to one of our Hug Alliance members.

2018 Sponsored Event

"Why the Last 20 Minutes of the Day Matter" with Andrew Newman

On April 11, 2018, Andrew Newman, author and entrepreneur, spoke to approximately 250 students at the University of Southern Indiana (USI) on “Why the Last 20 Minutes of the Day Matter.” His presentation included a discussion on life philosophy and conscious business practices. The event was co-sponsored by Hug Alliance and the Romain College of Business.

Newman was born into a fourth-generation family jewelry business in South Africa. However, when his life-long stability fell away overnight, he turned to spiritual inquiry, studying healing, psychology and personal development. Today Newman balances the worlds of entrepreneur and teacher, creating a healthy, mission-aligned business that serves the world on a personal, local, and global scale. He is the founder of the Conscious Bedtime Story Club and is the author of numerous children's books including The Boy Who Searched for Silence and The Hug Who Got Stuck.
