Drawing Marathons are fund-raisers for the Guild. After paying for logistics, all the money raised goes to keeping the Guild in business. Our business is bringing the Bay Area professional, legitimate, spectacular artist models. Models volunteer their time to make the fund raiser a success and to keep their beloved organization alive. We appreciate your attendance.
