Artist Marlene Kort & SSgt. Anthony Ngo Devote a Day Fundraising

Success!  Thanks to the many supporters of a newly started fundraiser “Plates & Palettes” in Old Colorado City for combat veterans diagnosed with PTSD.

It’s exciting to witness so many caring people who want to give. In spite of difficult economic times, people find ways to help others.
It was easy for me to jump on board to support this small organization with a big dream. They have limited funding and a goal to take a results-driven program national.  This group of caring Coloradans recognizes the need for a solution, other than drugs, for our combat heroes when they have nowhere to turn for help with PTSD.
Anyone who has lived with this disorder knows how effective therapy can be because drugs are not always the answer.  Art therapy is an effective tool.  I am excited to be part of this effort and hope you too will consider helping this cause.  This is neither a government funded nor a national program (yet) and relies on private contributions to support material needs and costs associated with running a dedicated art therapy program.
Hunter-Wolff Gallery will continue to support the program however we can.  During October, we are offering the opportunity to purchase beautiful blown glass hearts for the cause.  Every heart sale makes a difference—to the many combat heroes and their families.

It seems to be a common theme these days that non-profit charity organizations are dipping into reserves as contributions slow down, trying to do more with less. As a reminder, these organizations are counting on you to continue to help while their needs continue to grow. AutumnReflections24x24The Pikes Peak Partnership serves our community in so many ways helping those with multiple sclerosis, mental illness and physical disabilities.

On November 20, the PPP is hosting an Exclusive Donor and Volunteer Appreciation Reception at Hunter-Wolff Gallery to thank their past generous supporters and to encourage new support. Artist Katherine McNeill and Hunter-Wolff Gallery are offering a 30×30 aspen oil painting, “Autumn Reflection”, to stimulate donations during the evening. The painting will be offered to the top donor committing to $1800 or more during the Reception. If you have ever been a contributor or want to be a first-time contributor, call 719-520-9494 and we will make sure you receive a personal invitation to this important event or just show up and tell the host you saw this Blog and wanted to help.

Americans With A Heart

No one likes to think about illness, especially the #1 killer in America. However, heart disease kills more than 870,000 Americans annually — men, women and children.  Maybe you know someone who suffers from heart disease or someone who was taken prematurely from your world because of cardiovascular disease.

Fighting this disease is a tough battle and takes immense dedication and the generosity of many. Every donation is important.

Tartan30x30To show their gratitude to their past supporters, the American Heart Association hosted an Exclusive Donor Appreciation Reception at Hunter-Wolff Gallery this week. It was a special evening. Although everyone enjoyed a beautiful evening mingling and making new friends, it was reassuring to know so many people are caring and committed to helping others.  Topping the evening off, artist John Sherman (Colorado Springs Neuroradiologist) generously offered one of his paintings as an incentive to boost donations during the evening.  To help with the fight, all proceeds will go directly to the American Heart Association—and perhaps go towards saving another life (maybe even yours).  Remember, by helping the American Heart Association, it’s possible to enjoy a healthier life free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.  But their mission depends on volunteers and funding from thoughtful people like you and me.
