Music, Art and Auctions Benefitted Helping People Succeed At Its Second Annual Pinot & Picasso Special Event
Helping People Succeed’s Pinot & Picasso evening of fine wine and art presented the 2016 Art for Living Calendars for signing by 13 artists featured in the calendar and their latest art from beach scenes, birds and Florida citrus to a turn of the century downtown hotel location, all presented at The Floridian country club in Palm City.
Thanks to the support of host Bill Lichtenberger, who coordinated the evening for the second year, more than 150 guests were on hand to view the art work, bid on silent and LIVE auction items from additional art works from the artists and specialty items such as a trip to NASA and lunch with an astronaut, to a foursome with noted Florida PGA champion Larry Laoretti of Palm City and a Day on the Floridian full day fishing charter.
Enjoyng the evening at the Meet & Greet event for the calendar artists were Denise Jenkins, Carol Kepp, Val Lally, Pam Patterson, Ginny Jones, Dan Mackin, Cristina de la Vega, Linda Relis, Sharon Ferina, Julia Kelly, Sue Ann Mosley-Saleeby, Marian Vitale and Yolanda Luce. Five of the artists were new to the calendar, another four had not participated for several years and the remaining artists are featured each year.
A special framed painting, the last of noted local artist Jane Blatt, who died in February, was available through a LIVE auction to recognize her many contributions to Helping People Succeed through her participations in the calendar, in the annual White Shirt Night and other programs hosted by the nonprofit organization.
The lead sponsor of the event was Bank of America/U.S. Trust.
