Raffle Benefit for Original Painting

Please join me in raising money for a nonprofit called Pennsylvanians For Human Life. While volunteering at this pregnancy crisis center, my late mother, Donna Baloga, tirelessly helped her community, supported the needs of mothers-to-be, comforted victims of abuse, and informed the public on protecting the sanctity of human life from the moment of conception. 

By entering the raffle drawing in memory of my beloved mother, you have a chance to win my original acrylic and liquid gold leaf painting (below). All proceeds will benefit the Pennsylvanians for Human Life. 

Raffle tickets will be sold at all masses from Divine Mercy until the drawing on May 13, Mother’s Day, after the Fatima Devotion at Our Lady of Victory Church

Raffle tickets are $2 each or 3 for $5.

For more information, or if you’re out of the area and would still like to be part of the raffle drawing, contact Lynn Bartz at 570.639.5722. 

My mother did see the finished painting before she passed and did know I was dedicating it to her. I am blessed to be able to contribute my abilities to a meaningful cause such as this. Everyone, especially Carol Carroll, Lynn Bartz, and my dad, who are making this event come true, thank you for this opportunity to honor my mother in best way I know how! I love you all.

[UPDATE 3-19-18]: Raffle tickets for a chance to win my original acrylic and liquid gold leaf painting, dedicated to my mom, Donna Baloga, will be sold at all masses from Divine Mercy until the drawing on May 13, Mother’s Day, at Our Lady of Victory Church, after the Fatima Devotion. $2/Each or 3/$5 All proceeds benefit Pennsylvanians for Human Life, Wilkes-Barre, PA. Please read THIS post for more information.

This acrylic and liquid gold leaf painting is a piece I’ll be donating to a nonprofit organization so they can auction it off; all proceeds will go to them. It will be dedicated, on back, to my beloved late mother, Donna Baloga.

If you’re interested in the final piece, please stay tuned. As you may know it has been harrowing times. I’m surprising the nonprofit so details on which one to come. One of my mother’s main goals as a very active member of this center was to help mothers and babies in crisis.
