Island Support for Jenny: A Gala Event to Benefit Local Artist and Friend – Jenny Somers

June 2 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Chincoteaguer, Jenny Somers, has been involved as a behind the scenes volunteer for the CCA since our inception. You may know Jenny as the owner of Bayside Arts (open for many years on Main Street), as a tour guide on the Refuge service road, or as a familiar face at local art shows. She has also been a popular instructor at many CCA art classes over the years. Unfortunately, Jenny has been diagnosed with cancer again.  We don’t want her to have to fight this alone. Our goal is to generate enough funds to give Jenny a financial cushion to help alleviate the stress of mounting medical bills and transportation costs while seeking treatment. Join us on June 2nd as we gather to support Jenny.  Enjoy live music, an extensive array of hors d’oeuvres catered by Don’s Seafood, and a fundraising auction (run by Zeb Barfield) that will include original artwork by Jenny’s many friends and colleagues, gift certificates, and more.

Want to help?  Donate a piece of art, a gift certificate, or professional service to be auctioned at the event. Contact Cindy Faith to donate and arrange pickup.

Doors open at 5:00 pm, Auction begins at 7:00 pm.
Hors d’oeuvres and soft drinks included, cash bar.
