Come and see some HEROES Art starting Wednesday this week at Randoons, 962 1/2 Green Bay Rd in Winnetka. Some pretty cool art will be in the windows and available to view up close for 10 days. On Friday October 2, I will be there from 3 to 6:30 PM for a meet and greet! “The Art Walk Winnetka” is sponsored by the North Shore Art League, where I hone my craft. I am very honored to be participating and excited for all purchases not only benefit the Art League but HEROES as well! Randoons is one of my favorite shoppes on the North Shore and they also will be donating 10% of the stores sales for ALL 10 Days of the show! Please come check out this adorable shoppe and support local!
Thank you to all who donated for our Walk on September 20th! We had a Beautiful Day Out and were led on our way by our AMAZING Winnetka Fire Department! We raised Thousands of dollars to make a big difference in the lives of so many fighting Epilepsy. We recently gave $10,000 to The Danny Did Foundation and the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago. It feels so great to make a difference. We thank you for your continued support of our endeavors!

STAY TUNED FOR OUR NEXT EVENT 9/20! HEROES WALK WINNETKA!
We had and AMAZING sale last week and are so thankful for all who stopped by to see us! I am humbled with how much art we sold and we were left with 3 cookies! That’s it!! We are so grateful for all our HEROES who participated for this event and so proud of them. We had our best year ever and are so appreciative of OPTIQUE and Dr. Harms who sponsors us every year. We are working on a HEROES WALK WINNETKA for September, so stay tuned on ways to sponsor us as we walk a 10K through town to raise awareness and funds for Epilepsy! It takes a village to make a difference, and we have one!
Before the world changed, we did some good at the awesome Book Stall in Winnetka. We raised a lot of funds for research and support programs, and also collected a few boxes for the kids at Lurie Children’s!
We had a great event at The Book Stall, and are thankful for all who worked for us baking, working the event, those who stopped by, or donated online! Until our next event I will be doing a lot of painting and update our Art Page often! Check it out below right, the ART FOR HEROES tab near the picture of me painting will take you right to it!
We are going to buckle down and stay safe like all of you and we wish all of you health and safety in the coming weeks. If you happen to shop Amazon you can continue to support us by shopping Amazon Smile and choosing us as your charity! Our next event is outside July 17,18th at the Winnetka Sidewalk Sale on Lincoln Street with our favorite shop Optique!

I think people should donate money to Epilepsy. If we donate enough money we would find a cure and be free. People with Epilepsy won’t have to deal with space outs and pills. During a space out, my brain stops working for a few seconds and I pause in a conversation. If I was riding my bike, I could fall off. If I didn’t have space outs, I wouldn’t get stuck in a conversation or fall off my bike. Give money to Epilepsy so I don’t get hurt.
Scientists can use the money to study Epilepsy. The scientists look at your brain. They are looking for what causes Epilepsy. Then could stop Epilepsy and find a cure.
