Mobile Photography – Silent Auction – Very Important

I was so saddened to read yesterday a post by a very respected mobile photographer and artist – Armineh Hovanesian about one of her friends who tragically died, attempting to rescue her friend from drowning in the Caspian Sea. Hovaneisan describes her friend, Vane, as “young and extremely talented, with a big heart, full of courage, even to the very last minutes of her life”.

To honor her memory, with the help of talented artists and volunteers, Hovaneisan is hosting a silent auction at the Bridge of Health’s Glow Gala. Some of the incredible art in this auction is mobile and some traditional, all are stunning!

Please take a look at some of the art in the auction at this link

I am quite sure that all donations will be very gratefully received. Bridge of Health [501(c)3] sponsors cancer treatments for economically disadvantaged children in Armenia. All sales are tax deductible and our art sales are earmarked directly in Vane’s name to be used for treatment. Thank you.
