ARTMA was a huge success. If you weren't there, you missed an incredible event. I don' know what happened in the rest of the auction, but at our table and wall, emotions were extremely high. Kids receiving their gifts and viewing their finished pieces made from their drawings. Artists meeting their kids and getting lots of hugs and happy tears.

One parent said she hadn't seen her kid smile in two years, but on that night, her grin was from one ear to the other. Heartfelt thanks from all of the parents to the artists. I was exhausted when I finally left.

The topper of the evening was an incredible video, made just about us! They are sending me a copy and I will be showing it off at the picnic. (which is on June 12 at Mike and Sandi's backyard).

I have delayed writing this newsletter because I was waiting for totals from Morgan Adams Foundation.

This group, this incredible, talented, giving group, made close to $20,000 for Pediatric Cancer Research. I couldn't be prouder. WOW!

We have been invited to do this event again in two years! Need to come up with a good theme for the kids to draw. It has turned into the favorite part of the entire auction!

I won't be at this meeting as I will be attending and assisting with demos at the Glass Art Society conference. Mike and Sandi will be in charge and promise something magical to happen! Who knows what they have up their sleeve.

We also need lots of ideas for future meetings. What would you like to learn about? What would you like a demo about? Who would you like to have talk at one of the meetings? About? Please bring all of your ideas.

Before I end this newsletter, I would like to thank all of the artists who participated in ARTMA. Without your incredible time, materials, talent, and willingness to pay it forward to such a worthwhile cause, this would never have happened. I couldn't be more proud of all of you. Thank you so much. We ARE making a difference. And, getting glass art known throughout Colorado.
