Sept. 22 – Children’s $5 Caricature Drawings Done Via Skype by Renowned Caricature Artist
Here’s a fun, new way to get your child’s caricature drawing done – have it created by a caricature artist via Skype! From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., nationally-renowned caricature artist and animator, Gene Hamm, will be connected with The Doll House & Toy Store via Skype. With Hamm’s digital drawing tablet and paint program, every child will get five minutes to sit in front of the computer while Hamm jokes and banters back and forth and draws his or her caricature. Children will get to see the cartoon drawing of themselves unfold from beginning to end. The completed black and white drawing will be available for pick up at the toy store the next day. Cost is $5 per child, all proceeds will go to The Purple Society. Advanced reservations are required. 480-948-4630
This special event will be a fundraiser for The Purple Society – a local, charitable organization whose sole mission is help connect families of childhood cancer patients worldwide with resources, hope and inspiration while raising money to fund private cancer studies. For more information about artist Gene Hamm, visit www.hammcamcaricatures.com.
How can YOU help? Proceeds from all sales will be donated to The Purple Society to continue helping them meet their goals and provide families with help. We’d also like to be able to put Scentsy warmers in pediatric cancer treatment centers to give them something more to smell than the traditional “hospital setting” to help make them as comfortable as possible.
Click on the website: https://jstevens.scentsy.us/ then click “BUY” and join next to the fundraiser. It’s just that simple.
What is Scentsy? Scentsy warmers are a safe alternative to scented candles! Our Warmers melt and warm the wax releasing the fragrance into the air. No flame, no soot, NO LEAD. We also carry a variety of bath and body products in our “Layers” line, as well as laundry care products.
Please share this with your friends and family! Orders will be collected from now through October. Let’s see how much we can raise to help. I know these people personally and they really want to help families that have been there. Founded by Nitalia Conti in 2008, The Purple Society network directs resources to families from medical professionals and concerned community members as well as other families fighting the disease.
“Sometimes, during our greatest time of need we have the very thing that someone else needs…experience,” said Anthony Conti.
