Breath of Fresh Art Fundraiser
Weddings aren’t all we do around here! I was happy to serve on the planning committee for the Breath of Fresh Art fundraiser last night. The event benefited Wish 2 Breathe, a National Foundation for Transplants’ campaign in support of Jacksonville resident Lindsey Miller. The campaign’s goal is to help raise money for expenses related to Lindsey’s double lung transplant and the lifelong care she will need as a result.
The fundraiser was held at one of Jacksonville’s newest event venues – The Fountain View Room. Several area restaurants and caterers donated food stations for the event, including Nippers Beach Grille, Davoli’s Catering, Renna’s Pizza, Red Elephant, Flippin’ Good Cookies, and Edgewood Bakery. PRP Wine International also offered wine tastings to the events’ guests.
The event also featured a silent auction (with some heated bidding at the end!) as well as an art exhibition by two local artists – Mobarick Abdullah III and Adam Brett. It was a fun night for a great cause!
