Donation to Choc'laCure

"Brewing Above" is going to a gala tonight! It is attending a fundraiser called Choc'laCure and at some point in the evening it will be auctioned off. My fingers are crossed that someone loves it enough to bid and that it helps the organizers reach their goal of hitting the one million dollar mark of total dollars raised since the fundraiser's inception six years ago. It is a grassroots effort and I am honoured to participate with my art. Cancer unfortunately seems to creep into far too many of our lives and if one of my paintings can help raise some money for the Saskatoon Cancer Centre, well, sign me up!

Tonight I am thinking of my blogger friends who I know have dealt with this evil illness; I am thinking of my dear friend whose daughter has battled cancer twice (she is only in Grade Two) and I am thinking of my family. We lost my aunt to cancer in October.

Beautiful painting Nicki,

and good for you. I'm so sorry about your losses and for your friends and
family who have had cancer.

You are great.

XO Barbara

Thanks Barbara. I'm curious to hear how the auction went and if the painting sold. I've got my fingers crossed that the night was a huge success for the Saskatoon Cancer Centre.

You are more great!

Nicki XO

Choc'laCure was a resounding success with the 2012 campaign raising $298,000 to date. This amount will continue to grow as donations come in by year-end. Once we present this cheque to the Saskatoon Cancer Centre, Choc'laCure will have raised over $1,050,000 in just 6 years!! Thank you, Nicki for your donation to our auction ... I am pleased to say "Brewing Above" has a new home ... above my wine cabinet!!

With much appreciation, Shelley Gregg

Thank you for such a great comment Shelley. I am so happy that the event was a resounding success. You should be very proud of all you have accomplished. It is quite astounding. It was my privilege to help in the small way that I could.
