Let's Build: A Virtual Fundraiser for Brave Space Alliance 

Chicago! We’re back, and we’ve been coordinating. What’s on offer this August? This month, it’s a virtual raffle to support Brave Space Alliance, the first Black-led, trans-led LGBTQ Center located on the South Side of Chicago. BSA is dedicated to creating and providing affirming, culturally competent, for-us by-us resources, programming, and services for LGBTQ individuals on the South and West sides of the city.

Our call to action art raffle is set out to raise dollars to support BSA’s Building Campaign, for their new Hyde Park location. Connecting Chicago’s art community to the intersectional work of Brave Space Alliance during a time where support and love are crucial. We are stronger together. 

This raffle lineup is packed with a fiery collection of contributing artists to ride out this heat wave. 

Here’s the gist. 

  • Tune in all week long for artist features, a stacked showcase of talent, all in support of a gem of an org, @BSA. 
  • See a piece of art you’d like? Raffle tickets are $1 each, and there’s no limit on the amount of entries. ($50 will get you 50 raffle entries) Full list of artists HERE.
  • Venmo @MRBSAFUND to purchase raffle tickets.
  • Include your email address in the note field, so we can contact you if you win. 
  • Please also include the artist/piece of art you’re interested in per raffle ticket.**
  • Thursday, August, 20 @7PM - Moon Rise will be chatting with Jae Rice from Brave Space Alliance- so tune in to learn more about the work BSA is doing in the Chicago community! 
  • The Moon Rise crew will have a spreadsheet to track tickets purchased for each piece of art and we’ll use a random number generator to pull the winners on Saturday, August 22 live at 6PM on the Moon Rise IG.

Join us in bringing art into activism while honoring a vital space in the Chicago LGBTQ community. 


**If there is no note included in your purchase, your entries will be put into a randomized selection of art pieces. If you’d like your purchase to be donation only, without raffle entries, please specify that in your note.
