ABC 15 Arizona recently featured UGallery artist Cyndy Carstens and a special event she held in her gallery.
Her son Jonathan has been diagnosed with multiple myeloma bone cancer. In order to raise funds for his health bills, Cyndy hosted a unique fundraiser.
ABC’s Marnie McKim writes:
To help raise funds, she held a live painting event last month and a raffle at her gallery. She gave herself three hours to paint a picture that the winner of the raffle would then take home.
“A 24 by 30! That is not an easy task!,” she said.
Cyndy ended up raising more than $11,000 that night. She titled the piece she painted during the event “Hallelujah."
