Today Iain said if we were living in our daughter’s theatre world, last week would have been “Tech Week” for us. On top of all of his work at Ocean Alliance, we took a portrait exhibit down and put one up within 24 hours, took Dylan to a college audition, I had two portrait meetings, a site visit, finished and published a portrait, and Iain made his live storytelling debut at “Fish Tales: OMG” at Gloucester Stage.
But that’s not even the good news!
I have made it almost halfway to my fundraising goal for I Am More: Massachusetts ! To date I have raised $17,950 of the $40K which will make it possible for the 20 new portraits to travel around the state and impact as many viewers as possible in public spaces.
A huge thank you to these generous contributors:
Portrait Sponsor ($2K+):
- Lahey Health Behavioral Services
- Ken & Rose Carlsen
- Brace Cove Foundation
- Anita & Peter Thomas
- Lauren & Ted Suchecki
- Ann Carlsen
- Maggie & Joe Rosa
All contributions are tax deductible. Checks can be made out to Ocean Alliance with “I Am More” on the memo line, and sent to Amy Kerr, 3 Ledge Road, Gloucester, MA 01930. Any amount helps!
More good news–I was notified by the National Council for Behavioral Health that I Am More will be featured on their blog and social media during December as part of their “Art in Mind” series.
And locally, the Magnolia Library & Community Center will feature the original portraits as part of their “We Are More Marketplace” this Friday evening:
The best news of all is I’m taking my birthday off and my family is taking me to see Rufus Wainwright at the Emerson Colonial Theatre in Boston, and I can’t wait!
