I’m a big believer in supporting our local community; whether it be shopping locally, investing in local artists, or contributing your services to others. Whenever possible, I love to share to my art- but if it can benefit others than that’s even better.
On Sunday, June 25th from 5-10pm, there is a Benefit For A Cause: For Kortney Matthews happening in Port Hope (click on the highlighted link to view details on the Facebook Page). Kortney is a young mother of four children, and she’s currently going through chemotherapy. I met her many years ago, and although we fell out of touch, I remember her as a happy person, fun momma, and strong spirited woman. It made my heart sink (for her, her husband, and her children) to learn she is going through this. Any support you can give them, I am sure is much appreciated.
My painting “Chippewa Falls, Lake Superior” will be there, and all you have to do is buy a few raffle tickets to get your chance to win it! You can view my other Lake Superior Paintings in the “North West Gallery” to see the price range on this series (this one is valued at $200).
Along with a raffle table, there will be a huge variety of vendors selling their merchandise, and live music! I hope you can make it, to help invest in Kortney and her family, and support our local community.
Please help us spread the word- share this blog with others or share the Facebook Event on your own timeline!
