Thanks for help with ‘Sham Jam’


The Canvas Art Studio & Gallery at REACH offers a heartfelt thanks to Sen. Johnny Ellis and the Young Democrats for donating all of the proceeds of their recent fundraising event “Sham Jam: Mad Men” to our non-profit community art program. The dance was a great success and fabulous evening, raising $3,372 for Canvas programming support. Special thanks to Jeff Rogers, Sam Gottstein and Ted Madsen for organizing an elegant night of dancing and community support.
