ART WITH HEART
Art Show & Sale Benefiting Meals-on-Wheels
It Was a Great Success!
And There Are a Lot of People We Want to Thank
The ninth annual Art Show & Sale Benefiting Meals-on-Wheels–once again with Presenting Corporate Sponsor Wells Fargo heading the list of this year’s corporate and community sponsors and patrons and the participation of more than 55 top-flight Piedmont-area artists–was a tremendous success, raising enough to provide nearly 30,000 nutritious meals for the community’s homebound older adults.
Honorary Chairs and Sponsors
Honorary chairs for the event were Mia Celano and Noel “Skip” Dunn, both known for their interest in and support of the arts. Skip is a member of the Senior Services Foundation Board of Directors, and Mia, was in fact one of this year’s participating artists. In addition to Wells Fargo, the presenting sponsor, there are a number of other sponsors and patrons whose generous gifts also contributed greatly to the fundraiser’s bottom line, and we are very grateful for their important support. For 2019 the presenting individual sponsor was Adrienne Livengood, in memory of her mother, Virginia Dean Amos; lead community sponsor was Arbor Acres; lead corporate sponsor was Reynolds American; and lead patrons were Mr. and Mrs. Sam Ogburn, Sr., and Ms. Elizabeth A. Ogburn. Sponsors at the corporate champion level for this year were the Winston-Salem Journal and Publix. Please see below for a complete list of the 2019 Art Show & Sale Benefiting Meals-on-Wheels sponsors.
Making this event possible are our participating artists, two of whom actually came up with the idea for this fundraiser nine years ago: Dell James and Bonnie Dempster. They and their fellow artists generously donate a handsome portion of the proceeds of their sales to Meals-on-Wheels. Without the work of all these talented individuals and the time they commit to making the sale and show happen, there would be no event. We are thrilled that this year’s roster of artists is longest in the history of the event, and each artist on it has our deep appreciation. Here are this year’s artists:
Marion Adams Peggy Adelman Cynthia Anderson Karen Bass Lynette Bettini
Tony Bledsoe Sara Edi Boyd Joanna Britt Melrose Buchanan Rebeccah Byer
