Last night, the gorgeous Jacksonville Barn Co. hosted a wonderful event to benefit Sanctuary One, the amazing Jacksonville care farm that rescues animals and promotes mutual healing through those who visit the farm and work with the animals.
The champagne flowed, fabulous items were raffled off, and the evening was filled with generosity, from the visitors who bought items to support the sanctuary to those who donate a portion of sales to Sanctuary One, including artist Dana Feagin and Kat von Cupcake.
Dana’s exhibit was in a chandelier-lit room and filled with her Sanctuary One animal paintings…and 25 percent of sales from the event were donated to the sanctuary.
Greeting visitors at the entrance to the gallery were portraits of Cookies and Cream, pictured below, two cows who spent their lives donating blood at a California university — now retired and enjoying a lovely life at Sanctuary One.
Visit Dana online at Inspired Pet Portraits … a portion of all sales of Dana’s work supports animal rescue.
I was absolutely thrilled to meet Kat of Kat von Cupcake, whose vegan cupcakes were so delicious I lost count of how many I enjoyed.
Pictured above are the chocolate cupcakes; also contributing to my extreme sugar high were lemon cupcakes. Kat also prepared a gorgeous array of cookies for the event…
