The Daily Bread Soup Kitchen at Christ’s Lutheran Church in Woodstock would like to offer sincere thanks for their incredible generosity to artiste’ extraordinaire Richard Segalman, Alice Hoffman and the Woodstock Framing Gallery and to the remarkable new ‘connecting’ agency – Ulster Corps.
Richard Segalman, Alice Hoffman and the Woodstock Framing Gallery graciously contributed an absolutely lovely piece, ‘Lavender’, along with a signed book of Richard’s recent work for the inaugural ‘Arts for Ulster’ fundraising auction.
Ulster Corps coordinated the ‘Arts for Ulster’ fundraiser at WAAM (Woodstock Artist’s Association and Museum) which featured 50 works by 50 artists to benefit 50 Ulster County agencies!
Beneficiaries were groups that serve our community, including advocates for emergency food and shelter, local farms, arts and music, autism, physical and emotional disabilities, land conservancy, wildlife rehabilitation, history, literacy, health care, affordable housing and more.
What an amazing effort Ulster Corps put forward! Coordinating the agencies, art and artists, entertainment and the auction. Kudos to Beth McLendon, Rik Flynn, Nancy Pompeo, Rochelle Julian, Ilene Cutler and the entire Ulster Corps team.
Thank you to Richard, Alice and the WFG for their generosity and kindness. We appreciate your support as we continue in our 18th year of providing a hot meal for our friends and neighbors.
