In addition to the benefit concert, The Pink Show will be showing a beautiful exhibit of art for the entire month of October, at the gallery of Chris Sorensen. 2223 South Van Ness, at Van Ness and Railroad Avenue, just to the left of the Fresno arch sign.
On October 1st we will be having our 4th annual ArtHop featuring the sounds of Ken and Christine Connelly on vocals and string and Henry Kiersch on drums. The band; called True Blue, will rock your socks and bras off with some of the best vocals in our community, they write their own songs as well as do some cover songs. A real treat!
Christine Connelly, the only female member of the band, represents women with such quality and grace. Additionally, local community members will be submitting art entries, including decorated bras for a banner. All the art is related to the color of pink in support of breast cancer and other women’s issues. This is a must see exhibit. There is no cost to enter the gallery. Chris Sorensen has donated the gallery to us four years in a row. Thank you Chris Sorensen, the man with the biggest heart in Fresno.
Art sold will benefit St. Agnes Medical Center; cancer research and the Marjaree Mason Center for domestic violence. Two great causes that serve local women.
