Once again, preparations are underway for the Santa Monica-Malibu Wine Auction. And we’re designing the poster, signage, web ads, social media graphics, program and the various other support goodies — as we have since the Auction launched.

The auction (May 6 at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows) helps pay for the important work of the Santa Monica-Malibu Education Foundation, which funds support for the arts, literacy coaches, instructional assistants, and so many more programs that basic government funding sadly can’t provide.

The event promises to be a blast. Here’s a video of last year’s gathering. You’ll see FreeAssociates’ logo among the sponsors. We’re happy to be one!
