January 5, 2015 (FPRC) -- John Palmer Art has named the Lone Star Veterans Association as its 2015 Charity of the Year. After a tremendous amount of research and meetings with non-profit staff and volunteers, John Palmer Art is incredibly excited to support this 501(c)(3) organization for the entire calendar year through the raising of funds, increasing awareness and hosting special events. The Lone Star Veterans Association is the largest group of Post 9/11 veterans in the state of Texas. Their membership is primarily made up of the men and women who served in Afghanistan, Iraq, and around the world. Their efforts focus on veteran career transition, service and camaraderie. Just as Palmer empowers artists through his Escapist Mentorship Program, the LSVA empowers its veteran members to transition smoothly to civilian life. You can learn about the LSVA by visiting LoneStarVeterans.org.
Artist John Ross Palmer says, “My 2015 painting project focuses on honoring the United States by capturing the beauty of its cities and towns. It’s a great privilege for my business to support Lone Star this year to help the ladies and gentlemen that served to protect our liberty and freedom. I hope that my collectors will look forward to my art series inspired by veterans and our military—a new subject matter that I’m incredibly anxious to explore.” Chuck Bagnato, Executive Director of Lone Star, shares Palmer’s excitement, “They selected an organization with over 6000 members, 2600 of whom served or fought in our country's longest war. They will help us support our mission to make Texas the best place for transitioning veterans by getting them ready for the work force, helping them though the challenge of transitioning from combat to a productive and healthy civilian life and providing events and services that will enrich their lives and that of our community.”
As John Palmer Art's 2015 Charity of the Year, the LSVA will be specifically honored at the following events at the John Palmer Art Gallery & Studio: Official Charity of the Year Launch Party in March, The Afternoon & Evening of Escapism in October and an Official Fundraising Party for the LSVA (Date to be Determined).
