Win A Painting~! Transform Tanzania

As a lot of you know, I went on a mission trip to Tanzania, Africa a few years ago (2007) with my church to help local missionary Kay Frost.
She grew up in our church (First West), went to WMHS and to Tech.
Kay in Africa
 
At that time in my life,  I was going through a divorce, and this trip really helped me personally and put life into perspective. I got to paint and create art with orphan kids and got to see real exotic animals up close in their natural surroundings.
 
 Since then,I've tried to do what I can to help some of the kids back in Iringa, Tanzania. You may remember "adopting" a child and buying shoes for them
 or maybe buying a raffle ticket of a horse painting to help young Richard get back surgery he desperately needed.
  Well, the time has come to help again!! Kay is headed back to Tanzania to help widows and orphans and funds are needed to get her there and help with living expenses. The easiest thing I know to do is to donate a large painting for a raffle to help her.
 I've chosen to give my Rhino painting from The Trophy Series.
 You may of saw it in Bayoulife Magazine, or in Cascio Tavern Resturant or most recently at The Schepis Museum in Columbia, La. It's retail value is $1800 and is 48"x 48". It was created in 2012 and done in oil and charcoal on wood.

  We are only selling 100 tickets at $20 each so your chances of winning are very good!Drawing will be held May 24th and need not be present to win. You can mail in a check made out to "Transform Tanzania" or I can invoice you through Pay pal. I will mail you back your raffle stub.  Last time I did this, JohnnyWade of Monroe won! He is a local realtor/broker for Jack Fluck Realty.
  I really appreciate your help with this!! I believe in Kay and what she is doing. Feel free to keep up with her journeys on her blog www.kayintz.com.
