What: DiverseWorks "Luck of the Draw."

Where: At DiverseWorks headquarters on Fannin.

The 411: More than 200 artists contributed 7 by 9 inch works for the spirited art acquisition evening during which guests pay $100 per numbered chance to select a painting once their numbers are drawn. The first work to go was by Allison Hunter, selected by Ken General, who was the lucky one called first. Emcee Shannon Buggs and DiverseWorks executive director Elizabeth Dunbar drew the numbers, a waiting game that caused playful anxiety. Bridget and Patrick Wade served as chairs.

Among the other lucky winners was Lester Marks, who picked up a number of works including one by Whitney Biennial artist Kate Gilmore. Collector Jereann Chaney landed works by New York painters Carrie Moyer and Elizabeth Huey while Leigh and Reggie Smith chose a collage by New York-based Marc Swanson and a drawing by Peat Duggins

Who: Art enthusiasts helping raise $60,000 included Victoria and Marshal Lightman, David Shelton, Devin Borden, Kerry Inman, Wade Wilson, Anna Dean, Chris Goins and Josh Pazda, Coco Blaffer and DiverseWorks board president Jason Fuller, who took home Mel Chin's Double Crossed Loser.
