A worthy charity to benefit from Art Soufflé

Samantha van Dalen, organiser of Art Soufflé The Meridian FM Art Festival, is pleased to announce that part proceeds of ticket sales to the private view and art sales during the festival will be donated to The Blond McIndoe Research Foundation.  “I knew straight away that I had to support this wonderful foundation which is conducting ground breaking medical research to transform the lives of patients suffering wounds from traumatic injury, cancer or birth defects. The Blond McIndoe Research Foundation, which traces its history back to burned airmen of WWII, receives no statutory funding and relies on donations. The charity is based in East Grinstead which also played a part in my decision."
Blond McIndoe CEO, Jacquie Pinney, expressed her delight at the generosity of Ms. van Dalen and hopes that members of the local community will purchase the limited number of tickets available to the private view of the festival which is on the 23rd September. The private view is by invitation only however a strictly limited number of tickets are available to purchase at a cost of £300 each (each ticket admits two). For further information please contact Samantha van Dalen on 01 883 341 646. The Blond McIndoe Research Foundation will also receive part proceeds of sales of art during the festival so please do come along and show your support. Art at the festival will be available to buy from £20. (cards and prints) up to £60,000.

The private view: An evening with Dennis Locorriere, art and wine. Dennis Locorriere of Dr. Hook fame, will be performing at the private view. Dennis has sold 60 million albums in 40 countries as the original lead singer of Dr. Hook and in his own successful solo career.
