Mom According to Us: An Art Benefit


My good friend Vicky produces an art show each year for charity. The past few years its benefited St. Jude's Hospital, this year however the show will be focused on mothers and motherhood with proceeds going to the daughters of a young friend of Vicky’s named Stephanie Lee. Stephanie was previously profiled in an Esquire story and ultimately she and Vicky became close before she passed away recently from cancer. Her touching story profiled below is one of pain & heroism fueled by an immense love for her family. 

Vicky recently asked me to participate in this year’s show and profile Stephanie's daughters: Marchelle who is 9 and Kamri, 19. I didn't blink two seconds before I said yes. 

The sale which takes place on May 17th in Dumbo Brooklyn at Creative Chaos (shout out to Mark Arroyo) will bring together artists, mother's and enthusiasts to celebrate Stephanie's life. We would love for you to join us and support this cause. You can find out more about Stephanie and her daughters as well as the event via this Facebook page.

Last but not least, even if you can't attend you can still support the girls by clicking here.Hope to see you on May 17th so we can do some good together!
