My wife and I donated a bunch of art for the Music for the Arts Benefit that is held each year in our home town.
From the website: “The Music For The Arts Concert and Benefit held each year is dedicated to the life and memory of Christina Marie Cullen. She was a gifted photographer, artist and musician who had her life taken by breast cancer. She was only 25 when she was diagnosed and passed away at the young age of 28. We hold this concert in her honor and hope to inspire future photographers, artists and musicians to keep creating as she had.
Proceeds from the concert will go toward an award in her name to University of the Arts for Photography. Additional proceeds will be donated towards breast cancer research and awareness in her name.”
This is the first year that I had donated for this great event. I had met the guy who runs the Benefit this past year and he is a super nice guy, who also happened to be Christina’s brother. I hope to be able to donate something for them to raffle off every year going forward.
Unfortunatly we were both feeling a little under the weather and couldn’t make it out to the event. I had people I know who were there send me those two photos. It makes me happy to see that there was an interest in our paintings and that we could help out someone who is doing such a great thing.
