Art With Heart, the signature annual fundraiser for Safe Alliance, raises money for the nonprofit's mission of helping victims of domestic violence. 

The heart of the party is all the generous guests who bid on works of art in silent and live auctions, and the talented artists and gallery owners who make it all possible through their donations.
