One of the organizations Billy Hedel’s Studio supports is Soldier Dogs for Independence, a veterans’ service organization. There is a great feature in today’s paper about SSDI and its fundraiser last weekend which raised $ 30,000, a feat that deserved the “Cheers”the ECP gave the group on the op-ed page . Billy’s picture of one of Evansville’s historic firehouses was sold during the auction.
This past weekend Billy exhibited work at Patchwork Central during First Friday at Haynie’s Corner and donated a portion of his sales to Patchwork in support of its programming. That show continues through tomorrow night, May 9, during the monthly meeting of the Blackford’s Grove Neighborhood Association, of which Billy is vice-chair.
