In 1999, an art auction called “Kidz 2000 & Beyond” was held as a crusade against child abuse. The event took place at the Sheraton Bal Harbour in Bal Harbour, Miami Beach, Florida. One of the portraits featured in the auction was a depiction of the renowned musician Lenny Kravitz.

The art auction aimed to raise awareness about child abuse and generate funds to support organizations and initiatives dedicated to preventing and addressing this issue. By using art as a medium, the event sought to engage the community and bring attention to the importance of protecting and nurturing the well-being of children.
