Black and white with a splash of red was the theme of the event as Helping People Succeed unveiled the 2019 Art for Living Calendar at Harbour Ridge Yacht & Country Club on November 17.

Thanks to a remarkable man, Bill Lichtenberger, the local community is invited to Helping People Succeed’s 5th Annual Pinot & Picasso evening reception and dinner, featuring our incredible artists and the unveiling of the 2019 Art for Living Calendar. The theme of the event is black and white with a “splash” of red.
Helping People Succeed is coordinating a month-long “Baby Shower,” during the month of April asking for “baby necessities” to be collected for families in need.
“April Shower” boxes will be placed in businesses throughout Martin County and will be collecting infant-type items such as developmental toys, baby clothing, rattles, books, diapers and wipes.
On the evening of November 18th – the office of Helping People Succeed was transformed into a gallery of art unveiling its annual event Pinot & Picasso. The featured artists were those who were selected for the 2018 Art for Living Calendar.
Graciously hosted by Bill Lichtenberger – the event raised more than $80,000. In addition to fine wine, festive food stations in a “speak easy” atmosphere, there was a special performance given by Alexandria Paxton. Alexandria, now age 12, is a rising star in the music world. She played and sung the song “Daddy’s Girl”. Alexandria and her family were introduced to Helping People Succeed in “Play Groups” that Alexandria participated in when she was a toddler.
An original James Gibson painting, donated by Joan Jefferson, fetched $2,900.00 in the Live Auction and Erich Lichtenberger was the winner of the “hole-in-one” contest which landed him two VIP tickets to the Honda Classic.
Art work was sold at the event to benefit Helping People Succeed by the 2018 Art for Living Calendar artists. Present were Kelly Arnold, Sue Ann Mosley-Saleeby, Marian Vitale, Chris Kling, Dan Mackin, Pam Patterson, Kathy Pitts, Val Lally, Susan Roberts, Ginny Jones, Jillane Heveron, Karen Leffel-Massengill and Susan Fowler.
