We are so very excited to be offering a limited edition illustration by local artist Lori Loveberry George as a fundraising activity for the trust. The illustration will be available to mark John’s anniversary on May 28, 2014. Lori has been a family friend for many, many years and is an incredibly talented artist – and an incredibly wonderful person. Our goal is to sell 500 of the prints at $100 each. More on this soon!
We are set to make our third of three contributions to the Booker High School Visual and Performing Arts program. The first two donations centered on new guitars, computers and software for the students so this installment will focus on awarding students the opportunity to study at off campus sites this summer for either film or guitar. How great for so many of the students who have not been able to travel or certainly to study at a prestigious organization such as the Berkeley School of Music, New York Film Academy, National Guitar Workshop or Full Sail University to be able to build their resume in this fashion. We will be posting the students’ names and the programs they select in May 2014.
