VARIOUS CHARITIES I SUPPORT
For two years in a row, I made art donations to the Minnesota Vikings Foundation.
In 2018, a Stefon Diggs art print was donated to "Taste of the Vikings." It was signed by Diggs and then auctioned off at the gala. In 2019, I donated an original painting of Adam Thielen in which he also signed and it was auctioned off at the Vikings' annual event.
I also painted Dalvin Cook on a football which was displayed and auctioned off at a Vikings home game at US Bank Stadium.
All pieces helped raise money for the Minnesota Vikings Foundation, an organization that helps advance the well-being of youth through engaging health and education initiatives.
Minnesota Viking's star Running Back, Dalvin Cook, is greatly involved with Second Harvest Heartland. I donated an original painting of Dalvin, which he then signed, and it was auctioned off at the Second Harvest charity event "Dish." All of the proceeds helped provide meals to families in need.
Chris Squire, legendary bass player for the rock band YES passed away from Leukemia in 2015. His family asked fans to help make donations to the Mayo Clinic in lieu of flowers. For every print of Chris Squire sold, a donation is made with a portion of the proceeds to the Leukemia Research at Mayo Clinic Arizona.
The "Little Dreams Foundation" was founded by Orianne & Phil Collins to fulfill the dreams of young aspiring talents (in art, music, & sports) without financial means to achieve their goals. An original painting of Phil Collins was donated to be auctioned off for one of their future galas that will be signed by the musician himself to help raise money for these aspiring children.
