The Highwaymen Come to Life at Blue Martini’s Live Painting Charity Event

Join us at Blue Martini Phoenix on April 24, 2017. They will be hosting a great charity event supporting Not MY Kid with festivities starting at 6PM!

The Cowboy Lifestyle Network has teamed up with Tribute Art Live artists Randall Hedden and Katia Von Kral to help Arizona charity raise funds in their endeavors to assist youth. Not MY Kid focuses on empowering and educating youth, families, and communities with the knowledge and courage to identify and prevent negative behavior that could lead to long term destruction. Their hope is that every kid will have the knowledge and confidence to reach their full potential through making positive life choices.

Many years ago, the non-profit organization was born out of the real life experience of a family dealing with substance abuse. Through the difficult and dark days of addiction, intervention, and recovery, they found that sharing their story was both therapeutic for them and helpful to others in need. To date, Not MY Kid has not only helped thousands of kids and families in dealing with substance abuse but also with other struggles including bullying, unhealthy relationships, eating disorders, depression/self-injury, and internet safety.

On April 24, 2017, Blue Martini Phoenix will be hosting this great charity event which will undoubtedly be a huge success in supporting Not MY Kid. With the festivities starting at 6PM, there will be everything from live music by Mogollon’s Duane Moore and Ethan Newman, to a silent auction, raffle, art show, and the main event which is LIVE speed painting followed by a live auction.  The night will be emceed by none other than famous comedian Jill Kimmel, “from Jimmy Kimmel Live”, who will also take charge of the live auction to assure us that the live paintings will find a special home which will in turn support our favorite charity of the night, Not My Kid. If you love country music and all things that go with “country,” you will enjoy silent auction items provided by CLN such as cowboy and cowgirl boots and even Wrangler gift certificates and much more.

Artists Randall Hedden and Katia Von Kral will be speed painting the Highwaymen (Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, and Johnny Cash) and it will be amazing! If you have never seen live speed painting before, be sure not to miss it this time because you will not be disappointed. Hedden and Von Kral have been very successful in raising millions of dollars for charities through their speed painting events. The Cowboy Lifestyle Network hopes to see you there and welcomes you to come make this event a success as well. The event is open to the public but seating is limited so be sure to purchase your tickets now and arrive early or call for reservations. Advance tickets are $10 and can be purchased here. Tickets at the door are $12. Tickets are good for entry, 1 Titos Vodka drink, and entry into the 50/50 cash raffle. Address other information can be found by clicking here.
