A Fund Raising Raffle for Arts Benicia


HQ Gallery, Arata Fine Art Gallery, and Gallery 621!!! 

 Long time friend, Jacquelyn Dubois and Myself ( Mike Kendall) had recently been discussing some kind of fundraiser for Arts Benicia in these crazy unpredictable days.

Over the last 2 or 3 years, I have been donating sculpture items to be raffled off during several of their events during the year.

With the Gallery shut down, I had to put on my thinking cap to figure out something that would benefit Arts Benicia and possibly some of our galleries on first st.

I talked to Celeste Smeland and Jean Pernell at Arts Benicia and told them my idea.

They liked it and started approaching galleries and artists on First st. with the idea.

Below is the info they got back to me with! :)
