Julia’s Legacy of Hope’s first Art and Wine night was a huge success! The event was sold out, and even more wanted to attend. Thank you to Ellen of Ed n Joe’s in Tinley Park, Illinois for giving us the use of their private room, and thank you to Joanna Maas for being our teacher!
Everyone’s multi-media painting turned out wonderful, and a good time was had by all. Most inspiring was the diversity of the crowd -- everyone was connected in some way by Julia, though they did not all know each other. Participants included Julia’s teachers from high school, Julia’s friends from high school and their moms, Julia’s mom’s friends, Julia’s dad’s ex-students, and even our insurance agent and her friends!
Good news! Demand was so high that we have scheduled an Art & Wine Night II, this time in a bigger venue, El Coco Mia also in downtown Tinley.
