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.

Donna Gordon Glass Collection Hearts

I love my life as an American and think you probably do too.   This would be a different world without the men and women who serve our country in a uniform. I’m talking about our military forces here and abroad.  Those who serve in combat know their life is at risk but few think about the effects of trauma when they return home.  We are grateful when they come home to us but are not always prepared for the effects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).  It’s real and it isn’t always addressed until too late.

The Wounded Warriors, Colorado Springs, foundation has partnered with Aspen Pointe to help our combat veterans through Art Therapy.  It’s an effective method of therapy and we are here to support this fine group of caring friends in any way we can.  We are reaching out to you too to help us raise funding for this important cause and help those in need of our help.

During the Month of October sales proceeds from our Donna Gordon Blown Glass heart collection will be donated to the program to show our gratitude.  In addition, on Sunday, October 16 from 1-5 pm we are participating in a fun afternoon of food, demonstrations and a silent auction.  Proceeds from the day and silent auction will also help this important program.  We hope to see you here and look forward to receiving your help.
