Third Annual Art Show Featuring Jared Emerson Set for April 16

The Premier Foundation, in partnership with internationally acclaimed artist, Jared Emerson, announces the third annual Perspective: A Jared Emerson Art Show and Benefit.

The event will be held at 7:00 PM on Thursday, April 16, 2015, at Zen in downtown Greenville. The event benefits the Premier Foundation and its Adopt the Block program, a locally based non-profit 501(c)(3) foundation committed to serving the world’s impoverished. This year’s benefit will feature live performances by Emerson, an art show, live music, and silent and live auctions.

Perspective sets the standard for art shows and charity fundraisers in South Carolina,” said Gene Krcelic, president of the Premier Foundation. “Partnering with Jared Emerson on this event has allowed us to raise funds and truly make a significant impact with our Adopt the Block program.”

Perspective is Emerson’s third art show and will feature his talents with the use of various mediums including oil and acrylic. Known for his captivating live performance art, Emerson has performed in front of hundreds of thousands of fans while his paintings have generated invaluable resources for charity. “It is an honor to partner with the Premier Foundation on this show again this year,” Emerson said. “Our goals are to display the versatility in my art while raising money for an incredible charity, one that I am deeply and personally involved with.”

The Premier Foundation is committed to being a voice for the disadvantaged. The Foundation exists to love and serve the impoverished by meeting their physical, spiritual, educational, social, and emotional needs; empowering them to be agents of change in their communities.  Premier has raised over $80,000 during the first two years of Perspective to directly impact its mission.

With more than $4 million granted to non-profit organizations and ministries over the past 16 years, the foundation is raising funds for its Adopt the Block (ATB) program. ATB identifies communities where the Foundation can make a significant impact such as Nairobi, Kenya; Greenville, South Carolina; Cozumel, Mexico; Nassau, Bahamas; Lod, Israel; Free Hill, Jamaica; New Orleans; Detroit; and others.
