The gala this year is inspired by Jeffrey Owen Hanson, who is an award-winning, philanthropic artist on a mission to change the work through art.
Visually impaired since childhood, from Neurofibromatosis, Jeff's acrylic-on-canvas works employ bold color and heavily sculptured texture to create an unmistakable signature style.
Self-taught as an artist, Jeff first began painting while undergoing chemotherapy at age 12.
Despite his limited vision, he continues to create brilliant artwork - a sight for sore eyes, he calls it.
Jeff will be attending the event to auction off a piece of his incredible art!
