On Friday, October 9, Las Vegas-based organization, Circus Couture, held its 6th annual celebration, entitled “Twelve,” which is aimed at raising money for pediatric cancer treatment and research.
Featuring an “avant-garde” fashion show, circus performances, and displays of fine art, this year’s event brought in an impressive $192,000 through ticket sales, and high-priced auction items. Continuing his yearly tradition of participating in this wonderful charity, Peter Lik proudly donated a Limited Edition print of his powerful photograph, Metallic Symphony, (seen above) which sold for an outstanding $5,500.
It was a truly successful evening at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. As guests began enjoying their first few cocktails, the event kicked off with an auction that included the sale of Peter’s black & white depiction of Los Angeles landmark, the Walt Disney Concert Hall. Metallic Symphony, as it is aptly titled, has been a highly sought after piece by collectors – a vision that Peter himself has passionately described as “practically a three-dimensional image – offering the illusion that you could just about run your fingers along the polished surface.”
Proceeds from the Circus Couture events go towards benefitting the thousands of children diagnosed with cancer each year. Since its inception in 2010, the charity program has raised significant funds for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation & Children’s Specialty Center of Nevada – the only clinic in the state that treats kids with cancer regardless of their family's ability to pay for services. Peter was extremely honored to be part of such a good cause: “The life of a child is precious, and each one deserves a chance to live a healthy life. I am glad I could help raise a bit of money for such a worthy cause.”
