Hawaii Artist Thomas Deir Donates Art For 10th Annual JABSOM Homeless Project Fundraiser
HONOLULU, HAWAII – Hawaii artist Thomas Deir, resident of Kailua, Hawaii, has donated signed artwork to the 10th annual fundraising event of the University of Hawaii John A. Burns School of Medicine’s Hawaii H.O.M.E. (Homeless Outreach and Medical Education) Project. H.O.M.E. is a non-profit organization that provides free healthcare to Hawaii’s homeless population. This year, the annual fundraiser, Ho’ola Me Ke Kahiau, “Healing with compassion through selfless giving,” will be held on Saturday, November 19th, 2016 at the Waikiki Aquarium. Proceeds from this event will benefit six medical student-run free medical clinics at homeless shelters and to the unsheltered homeless in Hawaii.
WHAT: Silent Auction and Food and Wine Tasting fundraiser to benefit the Hawaii H.O.M.E. Project
WHERE: Waikiki Aquarium, 2777 Kalakaua Avenue, Honolulu
WHEN: Saturday, November 19, 2016 from 6:30 – 9:30 p.m.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to give back to the community through the Hawaii H.O.M.E. Project. This non-profit is all about collaboration and working with the community. The organizers and volunteers are creatively helping our community in many ways. H.O.M.E saves unnecessarily expensive trips to already busy and overworked hospitals in Hawaii. HOME is a long-term solution that can help the homeless population find much-needed care during a crisis event – and provide care to prevent a crisis event. My hope is the artwork I have donated will resonate with the supporters who will be attending the event,” said Deir.
Hawaii artist donations include Gift prints, Giclee canvas prints, Hawaii abstract paintings
“This fundraiser will occur during the Holiday Season, and I thought it would be helpful to offer Matted Gift Prints in addition to canvas Giclee prints and Hawaii abstract paintings. I hope my donation will contribute to the continuation of the good work by the Hawaii H.O.M.E. Project. They work they do is very important for our community,” said Deir.
