The show, taking place at Work & Leisure, is the first public event from the New Growth Horizon Charitable Foundation.
Proper Brands, recently voted Brand of the Year, Best Cultivator, and Best Manufacturer by Greenway Magazine, announces its inaugural “Wallflower” poster exhibition at Work & Leisure on April 7, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. This event is a collaboration between Proper Brands’ charitable arm, the New Growth Horizon Foundation, and Friends For Good. Art inspired by Proper Cannabis’ award-winning genetics library will be on display and available for sale online. The exhibition will feature over 35 St. Louis-based artists. All proceeds of poster sales will go to the Veterans Community Project and The Last Prisoner Project.
“We launched the N.G.H. Foundation at the same time we launched Proper Brands, and our aim has never changed; we want to set the bar for cannabis companies to help not only our patients, but our communities. We have five main areas of giving: Mental Health & Qualifying Conditions for Medical Marijuana, Criminal Justice & Re-Entry, Education and Employment, Homelessness & Housing, and the Betterment of Missouri,” says CEO and co-founder John Pennington.
“We’ve been looking for a larger opportunity to work with The Last Prisoner Project, the leading non-profit focusing on criminal justice and drug policy reform in the cannabis space, for a few years. This was the perfect fit.”
“Our team has been continuously inspired by the impact that the Veterans Community Project has had in Kansas City, and we’re honored to be able to help support their upcoming St. Louis VCP Village,” continued Pennington.
Proper Brands has collaborated with Friends For Good, which “brings together groups of creative people to create large-scale collaborative projects that celebrate companies doing good for people and the planet.” Friends For Good’s co-founders, David Rygiol and James Walker, have produced similar charitable art events before under Type Hike and Local Lands.
“I’ve bought art from every show Rygiol and Walker have put on. Working with them has been a dream of mine since their inaugural NPS 100 gallery,” says Spencer Pernikoff, Proper’s Marketing Manager. “Our team has loved seeing the wide range of styles that the artists have delivered.”
4 Hands Brewing Co. will also be on site pouring their State Wide. $1 from every case of Statewide sold in Missouri will be donated to the Veterans Community Project with the ultimate goal of raising $50,000, the cost to build a home for veterans in their new village.
Tickets for Wallflower go on sale today on Eventbrite, with a suggested donation of $5-10. All ticket proceeds will be donated.
