Olmec Apparel Ltd and the Spot Gym are combining forces to create a FUNDRAISER for the Colorado FLOOD VICTIMS. The fundraiser will consist of a silent auction, live music, an art show, body painted woman, beer, food and nothing but a good time!!!

The art show will feature the artwork of three local Colorado artists, Whit Boucher, Hunter Damiani, and William Thompson. All three artists will have art for sale, and all three artists will also be painting the half naked bodies of beautiful women as part of the show.

The live music will be performed by three very talented, Colorado jazz musicians, their style is a very funk based jazz so be expecting instrumental, funky versions of A Tribe Called Quest, Dr. Dre, and plenty of other classics!!!

There will also be a silent auction with some really incredible items, we will announce auction items very soon.

Get ready to boogie, enjoy some incredible art, beautiful woman, drink delicious beer, and benefit your local community/flood victims!!!! Please tell your friends, the more people that come, the more money we can raise for everybody who’s lives were destroyed by the flood.

If you would like to donate anything for the auction please email us at olmecapparel@gmail.com.
