Fun for All at JDRF “Art by Heroes” Day

March 10, 2011

On Sunday, February 27, 2011, JDRF Dallas hosted their annual “Art by Heroes” Day where Youth Ambassadors took part in some afternoon fun of painting and crafting.

The children had a great time making new friends, painting pottery and decorating quilting squares for the upcoming 2011 Dream Gala, along with each personalizing a bandana to be given to Celebrity Honoree Bret Michaels.

Each year at our Dream Gala, we have special items in our silent auction that have been created by JDRF ambassadors living with type 1 diabetes.

We hope that you will look for these hand crafted works of art throughout our Silent Auction this year at the 2011 Dream Gala on Saturday, March 26, 2011.

Thank you to the many volunteers who were there to help where needed: Sarah Baldwin, Kim Phillips, Amy Wrozek, Dominique Duvall, Mary Heather Hickman and Michele & Casey Martin. A special thanks also goes to Paint Yer Pottery and their volunteers for hosting our event and for their continued support of JDRF’s mission.
