Creating Memories with Mosaics at JDRF “Art by Heroes” Day

February 22, 2012

On Sunday, February 12, 2012, JDRF Dallas hosted their annual “Art by Heroes” Day where Youth Ambassadors took part in some afternoon fun of creating one-of-a-kind mosaic masterpieces.

The children had a great time making new friends, tiling and decorating quilting squares for the upcoming 2012 Dream Gala. Each year at our Dream Gala, we have special items in our silent auction that have been created by JDRF ambassadors living with T1D. In addition to our “Art by Heroes” mosaic pieces and quilt, we will also have a custom guitar shaped mosaic with Bret Michaels’ autograph!

Watch for a future blog posting with photos of some of these great works of art and we hope that you will join us at the 2012 Dream Gala on Saturday, March 31, 2012 to bid on these items. To learn more about the Dream Gala or to purchase your tickets today, visit our 2012 Dream Gala website.

Thank you to the many volunteers who were there to help where needed: Jasmine Amerasekera, Lauren Dee, Nicole Dee, Katie Hamilton, Katie Lyons and our quilters Michele & Casey Martin. A special thanks also goes to Smashing Times and the owner, Robin Oldham and her staff for hosting our event and for their support of JDRF.
