As a long-time contributor to the Victoria Hospitals Foundation, Visions Gala, I am proud to announce my fundraising initiative, Art for Life, 2021.
“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” –Winston Churchill
Last year, like so many non-profits, Victoria Hospitals Foundation were unable to hold their Visions Gala Fundraiser at the Empress Hotel. This annual event is their major fundraiser of the year and in 2019 in excess of a million dollars was raised. The funds raised at the Galas go towards purchasing a vital equipment for our hospital community.
For the past 16 years, I have donated a large painting to the Visions Gala Live Auction. Currently the total funds raised by my artwork exceeds $36,000. I am designated as a “Companion” on donor plaques displayed at Victoria’s two hospitals. I am very proud to be recognized by this vitally important organization. Although in 2020 it was not possible to contribute in the same way, I would like to assist the VHF through the sale of my works online. This is where Art for Life comes in…for every painting sold during the next three months, I will contribute 10% of the before tax purchase price to Victoria Hospitals Foundation.
