Upstate NY CMT Support and Action group held its second Starry Night Art de Cure gallery reception benefit on December 7, hosted by David and Elizabeth Misener at the CMT art gallery located at Clinical Prosthetics + Orthotics in Albany, NY.
Guests enjoyed complimentary wine, cheese, appetizers, and deserts, while browsing original art by regional artists, including: acrylics, framed photography, watercolors, mixed media and oil paintings. We also held a silent action of quilts, hand crafted jewelry, silk scarves, gift cards, wine baskets, baby blankets, books, photo note cards, an autographed Giants football poster, & more!
In addition, 4 Disney World Park Hopper tickets were raffled off along with a 50/50 raffle. Carey Ahner of The Bear Bones Project entertained with his guitar.
Over 100 people, including friends, family and neighbors came out on a cold, rainy night to support us. We announced the winner of the Disney raffle, Laurie Leal, and lucky bidders headed home with their loot. We received matching funds from CMTA board member, Elizabeth Ouellette, for her birthday wish.
We want to thank our sponsor M&T bank, our corporate donors, Fresh Market, Price Chopper , Olive Garden, and Cascade orthopedic supply. Also, thank you to the artists, families and friends, who contributed items for the silent auction and our guitarist, Carey Ahner of The Bear Bones Project, our volunteers: Donna & Rich Piche, Nicole Alonzo, Joanne Van Genderen, Miranda Rand, and Jessica Cameron and our hosts, everyone at CPO.Lastly, thank you to Upstate NY CMT member, Christine Hook, gallery coordinator, Jackie Watsky, and all of Art de Cure for making this gallery and event possible.
