Gilda’s Club 03/09/17
It’s always a mix of laughter and quiet, moving moments when we draw with the children at Gilda’s Club. Many of these kids have recently lost a parent to cancer and you can feel the weight within them, but creating something together brings warmth and connectivity that we hope can help to heal. We want to thank these kids for being brave enough to share their art and time with us.
Thank you to Gilda’s Club NYC for this special, supportive place and to our Ink Well volunteers who helped the kids make the most fantastic character flip books in town: Lisa LaBracio, Elana Amity, Joyce Pedretti, Sergei Aniskov, Pedro Delgado, Ray Alma, Elizabeth Winter, and Peter de Seve, special thanks to our Event Director, Franz Palomares for setting everything up and running the show.
