Read About Kait's Newest Honor and Goal to Raise Money for Cystic Fibrosis

This year I'm extremely grateful to be chosen as an honoree for Pittsburgh's 50 Finest and help raise funds to help extend the lives of people living with Cystic Fibrosis. For the next 6 months I'll be taking donation, hosting a few happy hour events and auctioning off some of my artwork to raise funds. I've donated to dozens of non profits and looking forward to adding to the fundraising for The Cystics Fibrosis Foundation. With your help and donations along with me donating my time and artwork we'll be one step closer to finding a cure and helping people and children who desperately need it. People with a life expectancy up to age 5 are now living into their 40's and the number continues to rise thanks to your help. I look forward to these next 6 months of fundraising and representing the city of Pittsburgh!

Game Changer Gala

As you read in the previous blog post I had the pleasure of creating artwork and attending the Game Changer and Mike Ditka Day Celebration Gala in honor of the Save Jon Foundation.  This year the Game Changer Gala was held July 30th at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pa. Coach Ditka along with multiple doctors and founding members, Dr. Lisa Boyette and Dr. Dietrich Stephan serve as executive and active board members to serve Save Jon's mission. Throughout the evening aligned a ray of entertainment with everyone suited in their tux and gowns. Throughout the course of dinner were speeches by multiple PSC survivors and activists including Jamie Redford, Dr. Coach Mike Ditka, and performances by Broadway singers.

After dinner there was a live auction that was held along with my painting "Blue Steel" to help raise funds for Save Jon. Although the original painting is being loved in a great home, prints are available for sale in my store section found here.  Each print sold is going to raise proceeds to the Save Jon organization. At the Gala I had the pleasure of meeting Coach Ditka who serves on the board of Save Jon in honor of his friend Walter Payton who passed away from PSC. One of this year's honoree's and former Steeler Jahine Arnold also suffers with PSC disease. He was unable to attend the event, but fortunately it was due to good reason because he had received a successful liver transplant just a week before the gala. I'm very honored to have been asked to donate my work, and proud to help raise money for Save Jon and help spread their message. To learn more about Save Jon please go to their website at www.savejon.org

NOW BOOKING!

Kait Is Now Booking For Live Painting At Events!

As the summer months quickly approaches, so does the growing number of parties and events. Everyone is looking forward to their parties and having a good time, but sometimes with the rush of all the events, they seem to just take over almost every weekend and blur together. I'm at the magical age right now where everyone on Facebook is either getting engaged or having a baby. Every summer my weekends become taken over by weddings, baby showers, or other events and gatherings to attend.

I've noticed now a days everyone is looking for the next best thing. Something to make their event stand out and better than the others. Out of all the events and parties you had to attend in a short period of time, which one stood out to you? All alcohol aside, which one do you remember the most? My cousin got married a couple years ago and everything he and his wife decided to do was out of the norm and non traditional. And guess what? It was my absolute favorite wedding I've ever been to, and all those little non traditional things they did stood out to me that I'll always remember. 

Now here's where I come in to help you become that event the people will remember for years. I'm now taking booking for live painting at events and parties and have something you haven't got to see at other events. Watch in person the behind the scenes of how an artist works to create the paintings that you love.  All paintings are done in acrylic so they are done and dry to take home at the end of the event. If you'd like to have me possibly paint and bring something that'll bring even more value to your event, please email kaitschoeb@gmail.com. Now get out there and enjoy this summer!
