Art Raffle ~ Click the box above for the Art Raffle, although it's ended, you can check out the fabulous art that had been submitted. Supporters had the month of February to purchase raffle tickets. The winners were drawn on Ian's birthday, February 28th. Over 60 art pieces were in the raffle. Thank you to the artists and sponsors who donated their work and in-kind pieces. The artists range from students to hobbyists to professionals.
Talent Showcase ~ Click the box above to be taken to our YouTube Channel. Talent performances are posted to our YouTube channel and were featured throughout the month of February on our social media accounts. Thank you to the 18 acts who gave their time and talent for this virtual show! Our performers range in ages from 7 to "I'd rather not say."
Our first annual Showcase, held on January 11, 2020 was a huge success with over 25 artists and over 50 performers taking part in person. The year 2021 brought us a new challenge to try and continue the Showcase for our 2nd year. We felt it was important to still have it, even if it didn't look the same as our first event.
Because of the 19 performances and 48 artists from all over the country, this year was even more successful in raising funds for Ian's Legacy Foundation. The virtual event allowed people to watch the performances and buy raffle tickets for art pieces, no matter where they live. We are truly honored, grateful and humbled by the support of the showcase by so many people.
For that we say to all involved: "Bravo! Well Done! Take a bow!"
