Creative Local Designer Comes up With a Creative Fundraiser!

North Lanark and area, you continue to amaze! Hub Hospice Palliative Care — and more importantly, their clients — is so grateful for the support this community shows for the work being done to help people when they need help the most.

One of the newer members of our business community, Judy Joannou, designer and owner of Judy Joannou Designs is hosting a silent auction art print fundraiser to benefit Hub Hospice Palliative Care. The auction is set to kick off on Friday, May 24th during Judy Joannou Designs’ First Anniversary Event. The silent auction will run through the early summer months and come to a close on August 4th at 4:00 p.m.

Judy started her career as a fashion designer at a very young age, following in her father’s footsteps. Trained at Cornell University and The London College of Fashion, she became a fashion designer for a junior sportswear company. A highlight was seeing her designs on display in a window at Macy’s in New York City. When it came time to slow the pace and let her own creativity shine, Judy and her husband Peter choose the Ottawa Valley where Judy worked out of her home studio. The next step was a bricks and mortar shop, where women could find her beautiful clothing as well as a hand-picked collection of complimentary items, and Almonte was the lucky choice!

Stop by the Judy Joannou Designs shop at 83 Mill Street in Almonte to try on a few of this Canadian designer’s line that boasts classic style with a twist. Fair warning, though, it is hard to walk out of the shop empty-handed. Enter your bid on the artwork, and remember to stop by often to see where your bid stands! You can also find her on Facebook.

Judy is thrilled to be donating 100% of the proceeds raised from the art print fundraiser to Hub Hospice.

Judy Joannou Designs Hosts Dolcezza Art Prints Silent Auction Fundraiser Benefitting Hub Hospice

From Judy…
Visitors to our shop have inquired about purchasing the beautiful Dolcezza art prints we have. My assistant Janet, came up with a brilliant idea, to sell them in a silent auction and give 100% of the proceeds to Hub Hospice Palliative Care. The bidding launches on May 24th and it will  close on August 4th, 2019 at 4 pm. Bids must be made in the store, 83 Mill Street, Almonte. Below is a gallery of the art for auction, which is printed on fabric and mounted.  Dolcezza Montreal, collaborates with these international artists, interpreting their paintings from canvas to fabric. From there, the Montreal design team develops capsule collections of mix and match sportswear. Click on the images below to see how these paintings become ART to WEAR.  Janet and I look forward to seeing you at the shop.
