Prints for Fundraisers

Over the years, I have donated prints for fundraising efforts to a variety of not-for-profit organizations. Recently, I made two such contributions for slient auctions.

 

I donated 'Prairie Crocus At Sunset' to the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB) for their 12th Annual Eye on the Arts Benefit Art Auction which was held on March 17 at the Winnipeg Convention Centre. Proceeds are used to help Manitobans living with vision loss.

 

Last year, I donated 'Bois des Esprits" to Save Our Seine (S.O.S.) for a special fundraising event on October 2nd called 'Celebrating the Seine - Save Our Seine's 20th Anniversary Event'.  S.O.S. is a community based stewardship group whose mandate is to protect, preserve and enhance the Seine River Environment within the City of Winnipeg. Thanks to photographer (and past S.O.S. President) Bob Tinker for the photograph of your truly recieving a certifcate from Bev Sawchuk of S.O.S. for being a Platinum Sponsor, along with Chris Insull of Photo Central for printing, strecthing and mounting the fine art print.
