WWE SUPERSTARS UNVEIL ARTISTIC TALENTS TO BENEFIT CHILDREN’S HEALTHCARE OF ATLANTA
Atlanta (Feb. 15, 2011)—Tickets are now on sale for WrestleMania® Art, a special, one-night event featuring artwork created by WWE Superstars and Divas, to be held at the Fox Theatre Wednesday, March 30 at 6:30 p.m. with Red Carpet arrival at 5:30 p.m.
WrestleMania is WWE’s annual pop culture extravaganza that will take place Sunday, April 3 at the Georgia Dome. As the kick-off to WrestleMania Week, and in collaboration with the Atlanta Sports Council, proceeds from the fourth annual WrestleMania Art will benefit Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.
“If there’s any organization that could create a unique and elegant event to raise money for charity, it’s WWE,” said Shelton Stevens of the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Foundation. “WWE’s presence in Atlanta not only represents significant economic impact for Atlanta’s economy, but will also help provide top-quality care to patients in Children’s hospitals today and in the future. We are very grateful for the opportunity to partner with the Atlanta Sports Council to bring this event to Atlanta.”
Approximately 20 WWE Superstars and Divas have contributed art since the 2008 inaugural event in Orlando, Fla. WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler has created at least one piece of art live at each of the previous art events, and once again his artwork is expected to be one of the top attractions.
“We are excited to bring WrestleMania Art to the Fox Theatre and showcase a side of WWE Superstars and Divas that is not normally seen by WWE Fans,” said John Saboor, Senior Vice President of Special Events, WWE. “We are pleased that the proceeds from this event will benefit Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.”
