Come join me, and half of Ithaca, today at Silky Jones for Mike Tagliavento’s Fundraiser. The event will begin at 4pm and go until 8pm tonight. If you can’t make it, visit http://www.fbmbmx.com/mike-tag-fund.php to show your love.
Tagliavento, also known as ‘Tag’, is an Ithaca native, BMX star, rider and video producer and friend to many of us, was diagnosed in April with Stage II Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Tag has already began and will continue to endure an 18-week chemotherapy treatments. Tag is without health insurance, so friends and family have pulled together this event today to help with the ongoing medical expenses.
Silky Jones, located in The Commons (next to Taste of Thai), will be donating proceeds from bar sales, silent auctions, and merchandise. Along with the long list of amazing things that will be donated to be auctioned off today are two of my original paintings:
“Purgatory”, a 24×36″ original acrylic painting on gallery wrapped canvas
part of my exhibit, “Reincarnation”, at Fine Line Bistro in late October-December 2010.
and “The Space Between Us”, a 30×40″ original painting on gallery wrapped canvas
from the exhibit in April 2010, “Naked Emotion”, at Just A Taste.
Come join us to help Mike Tag 4pm TODAY!
