On Tuesday, October 6, I will be participating in a fundraiser for Uniquely Manitoba, a local art organization that I belong to. The event is called 'In Someone Else's Shoes', a Celebrations Dinner Theater. It will feature a dinner, dance, choir and an art display and sales with about 30 Manitoba Artists attending, including myself. Last year, I was honored by UM with a 'Rising Star Award'.
At the event, I will have some of my books available for sale, including 'Ontario', 'Beautiful Alberta' and 'Canada'. In addition, I will have note cards and a few framed fine art prints. This is an excellent opportunity to start your Xmas shopping and support a good cause at the same time! Sorry, but Xmas isn't too far away!
The event takes place at the Canad Inn in Fort Garry at 1824 Pembina Hwy in Winnipeg.
The Art Display/Sales is free to the public and will take place from 9:30 am - 4:30 pm and again from 8:30 pm - 9:30 PM. Tickets for the Dinner/Show are $35 and may be purchased by contacting Marilyn at (204) 784-8263 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope to see some of you there!
Over the years, I have donated prints for fundraising efforts to a variety of non-profit organizations. Recently, I made two such contributions.
I donated 'Prairie Crocus At Sunset' to the CNIB (Canadian National Institute for the Blind) 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.
