The inaugural ArtAngels event was held at CIRCA on Jellicoe in November 2011. The event was an overwhelming success and raised R1.6m for PEN, a charity focused on the needs of children living within the broader Tshwane. The funds raised were specifically allocated to the following PEN projects:
* Pre-School Forum – an outreach program to improve the education of c.100 care-givers at 14 day-care centres aimed at ensuring quality early childhood development programs for c.960 children in these centres
* Hide & Seek, Find and Treat – a program run through the Pre-School Forum and community programs aimed at early identification and treatment of HIV-infected children so as to minimise developmental delays and avoid preventable sickness and death
* PEN Overheads – 10% of all funds raised
