-Tito’s & Sprecher Beverage and Snack Shack with $5 Drinks: 5-9pm
These events are on 9/11/16, but as you might know, this isn’t just about what took place 15 years ago. It’s about what took place immediately after, and bringing that hope and unity to our community. One of our service members was just killed in action a few days ago, so this isn’t about 15 years ago…it’s about this morning, when thousands of sons and daughters woke up to realize mom or dad is still gone as they made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Their hearts break every day with that reality—we’re asking for people to join us in remembering them for one day. Will you join us?
We still need your help…Artist Jon Allen is helping us raise funds with his beautiful Contemporary Metal Art Ribbon Sculptures!! For a $325 donation to On Purpose Journey Inc., you will receive one of Jon’s metal art sculptures and you get to choose the color—Red Twist, Blue Perfect Moment, or Emerald Jewel Green! A photo of the Red Twist is below.
Get Your Sculpture In Two Easy Steps (the sculpture will be shipped to you in a big box!):
1. Go to www.OnPurposeJourney.com/donate
2. Donate $325 (or more!) and write red, blue, or green after your name (so we know which color sculpture you want!)
Why is Jon helping us out? Well, we’re in the final stretch and we still need $6,900 to get books into schools—we want to give books to ALL the kids on our list. If you help us help the kids, you receive a permanent piece of art thank you!
Here’s more about your stunning art sculpture:
Each ribbon loops and spirals, rising up from a gentle perch on top of its base, its visual movement suggestion real motion, a dance that lasts forever. This contemporary metal art piece is a graceful defiance of gravity, a weightless element that rests lightly on a curved foot and flies heavenward.
Sophisticated finished black base.
For Indoor Display: Rubber bumpers are included for indoor display.
For Outdoor Display: The sculpture’s sleek black base features a sturdy base plate that includes four pre-drilled holes that enable you to screw or bolt your sculpture to a wood deck, concrete patio, or garden stone for added stability.
Freestanding sculptures are suited for an all-weather all-season display. Collectors in the heat of summer and in the midst of a snowstorm alike can relax knowing their sculpture was made to be enjoyed all year round. Each sculpture is handmade and skillfully crafted with an aircraft grade aluminum that is naturally non-corrosive. Sculptures also receive a protective UV clear coating that helps the sculpture maintain its luster and vibrancy.
Approximately 49″ x 17″ x 14″, including the 12″ base
Our STANDING FOR THE FALLEN Event is FREE to the community with FREE parking. More about the events can be found here: www.OnPurposeJourney.com/9-11
