A Venetian Masquerade Ball - Live Event Painting

Wilmington, North Carolina

It was an honor to participate in the Junior Diabetes Research Foundation's annual Hope Gala.  This black tie event was indeed, dress to impress, and for a wonderful cause!  Guests were disguised in fabulous masks, embracing this year's theme: A Venetian Masquerade Ball.  The evening included live entertainment from The Phase Band, incredible Live Statues, a Silent Auction, and a Live Event Painting by Ben Keys.
