Last month, Queen Anna partnered with Griffin Art Gallery for an evening benefiting the Agape Oasis. The night consisted of wine, hors-d'oeuvres, shopping, and great conversation.
On display throughout the store were paintings by fine artist John Gerber. Guests enjoyed being able to speak with the artist himself as he explained the inspiration behind a few of his pieces.
Later on, John gathered an audience as he signed one of his pieces that Queen Anna has had on displayed since the grand opening of the boutique in April.
The night concluded with a speech from Jodi Thibideaux of the Purple Purse. She spoke passionately about how the Agape Oasis is a nonprofit organization working hard to make a difference in the community. They focus on helping victims of domestic violence through crisis intervention, child development, and overall support. Since one in four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime, the cause is important to Queen Anna.
A portion of the store's proceeds from October was donated to the Agape Oasis.
A big thanks to everyone who attended for making the event such a great evening.
