2014 Volunteer Activity
I have been a Friends of the Animal Shelter (FOTAS) volunteer for seven years, walking dogs at the Jackson County Animal Shelter on Saturday mornings. This year, one of my paintings was featured on their “Paws to Celebrate” invitations, and a custom painting was auctioned off as part of the live auction.
I was on the planning committee for Sanctuary One’s Summer Soiree and Benefit, and donated a painting of their rooster, Morgan, for that event. I also participated in the Jacksonville Barn Company’s benefit night for Sanctuary One in the spring, and 25% of my sales that night was donated to the Sanctuary. Happily, Sanctuary One continues to use my artwork in their print advertising.
Last year, my only volunteer work related to Equamore was my involvement on Karen Rycheck’s Indigogo team, helping to raise money to construct a mural in Talent, OR featuring the horses at Equamore Horse Sanctuary. I look forward to seeing Karen’s completed mural and the associated PR for that in 2015!
