Peg Graham & Marion Burnett, fundraising organizers extraordinaire hosted another exceptional art show at St-Paul’s Trinity Church here in Toronto. The two masterminds showcased a group of extremely skilled local artists. Partial proceeds raised at the event are forwarded to the Masai girls in Tanzania.
When asked what the motivation is behind this incredible venture,“ well being painters ourselves and seeing an opportunity to get the works of local artists out there, we thought we would put together an art show of sorts ” explains Graham. “When a girl is educated, not only is she educated but so is her family and her entire community,” Graham adds.
20+ artists took part in total and the creation and running of the show itself is performed by a generous and dedicated team of volunteers passionate about making a difference and changing the world one step at a time.
As for Graham and Burnett, they know about community building given their business partnership as real estate agents for 30+ years.
In February 2014, Peg Graham will be visiting the women of Masai in Tanzania.
