Our artist, Steve Henderson, donated his painting, “Dream Catcher,” to a charity to help raise money for twin girls.
The Taylor Twins Throwdown event was sponsored by CrossFit Gyms Northwest, Tucson, AZ. The benefit auction was for Paige and Cooper, twin girls born at 27 weeks. The subsequent hospital and medical care mounted costs for this family, and the CrossFit Gym family put on the event to help cover costs. In addition to the auction, the event consisted of a competitive event involving 85 two-person teams signing up for the physical challenges people pursue in CrossFit. When Steve and his wife found out about this charity (through their daughter, Sierra, who works out at the gym) they decided they wanted to help this family out. Steve was generous enough to donate his painting to auction.
The auction was a success and the painting entered in the top tier level of prizes. The day the painting arrived at the gym, all activity (including classes which were supposed to start within a few minutes) stopped as staff and members crowded into the office to see the work. The winner of the painting said:
“Such a priceless piece especially knowing its history, the cause, and the people surrounding it. Thank you Henderson family for your wonderful donation. It will be up on my wall very soon!”
