All of us here at FSU CARD would like to extend a tremendous ‘Thank You’ to Brinda Pamulapati and VENVI Art Gallery! On Saturday, November 7th, VENVI held its Grand Opening benefiting the FSU Autism Institute. They graciously donated 25% of the week’s sales to the Institute and donated a beautiful piece of art that was auctioned online and at the opening, with 100% of the proceeds going to the Autism Institute. Also, a special ‘Thank You’ to Vivian Roden for introducing us to Brinda and the whole VENVI Gallery family. We are so very appreciative for their generous support! Please visit the gallery online at www.venviartgallery.com and in their beautiful storefront location at 2901 E. Park Ave, Suite 2800.
