Artist Melissa McKinnon and her painting “In This Moment” featured in the Lethbridge Herald newspaper.

Last week I was invited to Lethbridge to sit down with Global TV and the Lethbridge Herald to interview about my painting “In This Moment” which is being raffled off to raise money for The Alzheimer’s Society of Alberta.

By donating this painting, I hope to raise a TON of money for the Alzheimer’s Society, so in turn, they can do what they do best and help those affected by this terrible disease. With every $20 donation to the Hearts and Art for Alzheimer’s 2014 Fundraiser you will receive a raffle ticket and the chance to own this original painting.

Raffle tickets are $20 and available for purchase until FEBRUARY 28, 2014.

To BUY TICKETS and read more about the inspiration behind this painting CLICK HERE.

Please “LIKE” and SHARE this post via email, Facebook and Twitter to help me spread the word. Just click on the social media buttons at the bottom of this page.

Thank you Mark Campbell from Scene and Heard on Global TV  and Nick Kuhl  and David Rossiter from the Lethbridge Herald for helping me raise awareness for Alzheimer’s (and for making me look so good)!
