Perspective Art Show Raises over $50,000 for Premier Foundation

The Premier Foundation’s third annual event, Perspective: A Jared Emerson Art Show and Benefit, generated $55,000 for the charity and its global program, Adopt the Block.

The event featured the work of internationally acclaimed artist Jared Emerson.  Jared’s work for this year’s show concentrated on his unique perspective of some of the world’s greatest works of art. In attendance were professional athletes Connor Shaw and George Hincapie as well as Delvin Choice from “The Voice” plus 350 art patrons and Premier Foundation supporters.

“Every year the event gets better and the community continually supports our effort to make a significant impact on others in need,” said Gene Krcelic, president of the Premier Foundation.   “Having a partner such as Jared Emerson allows us to produce a first class event while supporting a very important artist and generating money for good works around the world.”

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 $130,000 during the first three years of Perspective to directly impact its mission.

With more than $4 million granted to non-profit organizations and ministries over the past 17 years, the Foundation raised 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; and Detroit.  This year, the Foundation added a veterans project in Greenville to help support those who have sacrificed so much for our freedom.
