Life Is A Gift benefit celebration & art auction by Friends of Scott Griffin, Sun, July 30, 2 - 6 pm, Petroleum Club
Patrons will enjoy a broad selection of original artwork from which to bid through silent auction. A variety of other valuable items from area businesses will also be auctioned. The theme will be much like a birthday party, with festive decorations, heavy hors d’oeuvres, live music and a very, very special gift for everyone who comes.
Proceeds from this event will go to “Friends of Scott Griffin,” a grass roots organization formed to lend assistance to Shreveport artist, musician and photographer Scott Griffin, who is now battling cancer and has been unable to work for several months. The goal is to raise public awareness of cancer, share Griffin’s work and raise donations to help offset his expenses.
Artists contributing work to “Life Is A Gift” include, but may not be limited to:
Michael G. Moore
Denise Peske Dews
In addition to works of art:
Dee's Photo – digital camera
Eldorado Casino – spa package
Stephen Miller Designs – jewelry
Shreveport Symphony – season tickets package
Arlena Acree – designer jewelry
Lewis Gifts – gift certificate
Other items: massages, yoga, qigong and t'ai chi lessons and a gormet meal prepared by a well-known local chef in the winner’s home.
