CJR Fine Arts & Frame has a plan to raise more than $25,000 in the fight against diabetes, $25 at a time. The gallery has produced two limited-edition offset lithographs by well-known contemporary artists. The lithographs cost $25 each, and 100 percent of the proceeds will go directly to the American Diabetes Association or the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
CJR Fine Arts & Frame is conducting a big event the evening of Thursday, Nov. 19 in conjunction with the grand opening of its new art gallery in Royal Palm Beach.
Do you know anyone affected by diabetes? Most everyone does, including the owners of the gallery. Today, diabetes is epidemic, according to the Centers for Disease Control, the National Institutes of Health, the American Diabetes Association and other national healthcare leaders.
For this reason, November is Diabetes Awareness month, and CJR has chosen this great cause to help announce the new gallery.
With each lithograph sold, the buyer will be entered into a drawing for an original painting worth $6,500. At the Nov. 19 event, there will be an opportunity to meet and take a photo with the artists, and to have your lithograph signed.
It won’t be your typical fundraiser. It will be a fun evening with plenty of healthy hors d’oeuvres and wine, plus plenty of giveaways. There will be plenty of top artists there, as well as many dignitaries.
Join the event at CJR Fine Arts & Frame from 6 to 9 p.m. on Nov. 19 at 514B N. State Road 7 in Royal Palm Beach, just north of Southern Blvd. on the east side.
