“11 years ago we founded Art City
and are still involved today.”

Art City is a non-for-profit organization that was founded by
Alicia Mulak and Lori Martin in 2003. They provide after school art programs for the children and youth of St. James Town’s community. For 8 years, Lori and Alicia were actively involved in studio staffing, programming and fundraising in an effort to foster creative thinking and nurture self-esteem and personal accomplishment.

“Proms are special.
We made them accessible.”

The Corsage Project’s mission is to make a difference “one dress at a time” by providing free formalwear to high school students who cannot afford to attend prom. As one of the original sponsors,
CVi ensured that these remarkable young women could acquire gowns and accessories not only to celebrate achieving an important milestone – graduating high school – but also to feel empowered on their path to adulthood.
