Art For Ethiopia 2009 Update

It’s that time of year again– time to plan the second annual Ethiopian Orphan Relief  Art for Ethiopia art sale and auction. We had a wildly successful event last year, raising over $12,000 to benefit Children’s Heaven’s new facility fund. We just had our first planning meeting for the event which will be held on Saturday, November 14, 2009 at Flash Gallery in Lakewood, Colorado. This year, we plan to create a fancier event for adults without kids in tow and will hold the children &  family photo shoots by Greg Cradick earlier in the day. Spaces will fill up quickly for the photo shoots (all proceeds will benefit EOR), so people will need to sign up before the event for them. We are so grateful to have a wonderful planning committee this year which includes Greg Cradick (co-chair with me), Danielle Marquis (EOR prez), Shawn Rodda, Tracy Stevens, Emily Andronicci (Lauren’s sister), & Katy Bell (awesome new Board member and one of my personal heroines). We also hope to have a host of volunteers to help both before and during the event.
This year we plan to solicit art from regionally as well as nationally recognized artists. Tune in later for more details about that. We will also be selling tickets for this year’s event which will feature fine art, heavy hors d’oevres, drinks, music and a chance to dress up and wear those high heels that are buried in your closet (or in my case, a chance to purchase a pair of high heels since I gave away my only pair already). For now, save the date and let us know if you’d like to help as a volunteer or if you have any fabulous art to donate!  We are all looking forward to it!

Cheers,

Jane

One thought on “Art For Ethiopia 2009 Update

  1. I AM ETHIOPIAN. I AM A NURSE AND HOLDER OF BACHELOR OF PHARMACY. BY INCALCATING MY TWO PROFESSIONS I HAVE VISION TO WORK IN MALNOURISHED CHILDREN IN ETHIOPIA. THE CHANCE TO STUDY THE FIELD IN ETHIOPIA IS TOO NARROW FOR ME & IF I GET THE ACCESS TO STUDY MASTERS DEGREE IN “NUTRITION”, IT IS MY IMMEASURABLE PLEASURE.

    I LOOK FORWARD TO SEE RESPONSE SOON,
