Open Patio and
Studio Tour
Fundraiser for BBBS
Sunday, February 7 
Noon to 6 pm
216 Palermo Place, Venice, FL
Mary Erickson will be partnering with Joy Mahler at Big Brothers & Big Sisters of the Sun Coast (BBBS) to raise funds for those in their organization in need. We are hosting an Open Patio and Studio Tour from Noon to 6 p.m.

Forty percent (40%) of all sales and 100% of the proceeds of a raffled Mary Erickson painting will be given directly to BBBS of the Sun Coast. New paintings will be on display outside on the patio, which leads into the studio.

Guests can enter through the patio gates from Riviera Street. Assorted Dove chocolates and Champagne will be offered. Masks and social distancing guidelines will be adhered to.
Please join us!
"I will also be donating this original painting of a local scene for their online auction in March. All 100% of proceeds will benefit BBBS."

Say hello to Muta and her name means Goddess of silence. The name is quite fitting as Muta is a very intelligent and independent cat. She will come to you when she is ready for some love, but would really prefer to spend her time exploring! A nice cat tree by a window would be the perfect set up for this gal. 
Meet Daisy! This beautiful girl enjoys the simple things in life, like a good hike and playing fetch! Being outside, having a good time with the people she loves is what would make her the happiest! Maybe that person could be you?!
