Art For Arthritis
I have been given the opportunity to volunteer for the”Art For Arthritis,” which pairs children with Juvenile Arthritis with local professional artists.
Together they create beautiful and inspiring works of art while building pride and self esteem . I have been paired with a delightful 7-year-old named Marianne, of James Island S.C. The paintings will go up for auction at the Annual Gala, called the “D’Vine Afffair,” to raise money for Arthritis Research, treatment, and education.
My favorite Palmetto palm was the subject of our paintings. 2012
KIDS GET ARTHRITIS TOO: The motto for the 2013 D’Vine Affair. Marianne and I painted together again, and our works were auctioned off at the Affair in September, 2013, with the other Artists and Children. Hundreds of people from the medical and business communities attend, and all proceeds go directly to the Arthritis Foundation.
