THE MELISSA ETHERIDGE PROJECT
The Melissa Etheridge Project.
A power house artist of many years, an inspiration to countless women who needed a voice and a battle cry to stand up against prejudice and who needed support both in life, in women’s health issues and in the matters of a restless soul seeking a loving place in the world.
Wendy Rose Artist has partnered with LIBBY’s LEGACY a Breast Cancer Not For Profit Foundation supporting those struggling with cancer without needed support. We are donating 20% of every sale in perpetuity to this cause. Cofounders Robin Maynard- Harris and Melissa Etheridge use the foundation to support to cancer sufferers, and to teach Healthy Living skills, starting with what we put in our bodies. As part of this effort they also started the Pink Ribbon Garden to provide healthy food and support to those going through the hard road of battling cancer.
OUR MELISSA ETHERIDGE PROJECT EVENTS
I was asked to learn a new painting technique and media for fundraising for Libby’s Legacy Foundation for the March 2019 Melissa Etheridge Cruise where I will be performing live for the crowd. However, I was asked to perform at the New York Capital District Pink Ribbon Garden Ground Breaking Ceremony/Come To My Table fundraising event so the deadline was moved to October 2018! Yikes!
Here is a part of the painting, can you guess what it is?
Imagine seeing the painting coming to life in front of your eyes, at lightning speed, but painted upside down.
The Pink Ribbon Garden (PRG) is co-founded by Libby’s Legacy Breast Cancer Foundation and Grammy-winning musician Melissa Etheridge. The structure is designed by Libby’s Legacy, built by volunteers, painted pink and planted by survivors.
Research has shown that good nutrition and dietary intervention can help prevent breast cancer recurrence, in some cases by up to 24 percent. As part of the project’s “Grow one, Give one” concept, each survivor tends the garden and for each bag harvested, the survivor collects another bag for a patient in current treatment.
We welcome survivors who would like to volunteer on this project. For more information or to sign up, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Painted upside down in less than 7 min, in front of everyone invited to the ribbon cutting for the garden.
Signed by Melissa Etheridge and the event and sold at the Come to My Table dinner with proceeds to the Libby’s Breast Cancer Foundation.
Come To My Table is an Exclusive VIP Charity Dinner fundraising opportunity where attendees are invited to share an evening and a meal with Grammy Winning singer/songwriter Melissa Etheridge and the creator/producer of “Nurse Jackie”.
With only 32 seats, the event features a live guitar/art auction with proceeds going to Libby’s Legacy Breast Cancer Foundation.
This piece of art was auctioned at the event, but we still have prints available.
The Melissa Etheridge Cruise 2019. How amazing is having the opportunity to go on a cruise that is full of musicians and like minded folks? Day after day of fun, sun and music almost 24/7! The proceeds of the artwork sold during the cruise all went to Libby’s Foundation not for profit.
The Melissa Etheridge Cruise 2019 water colors. One time originals sold during the cruise, but these were just fun watercolors that we did not scan so there will be no copies….or prints. Last minute fun additions to the auction, protected in plastic.
