On Saturday, April 10 from 5 to 8 p.m., The Shady Ladies Art Gallery is holding a Grand Re-Opening Reception, featuring Artist of the Month, Christy LeLait, with her exhibition, “This is Fernandina.” All proceeds from this exhibition will benefit the FOAR FROM HOME, an ocean row team composed of four veterans from Fernandina Beach, Florida.
Each rower served in different branches of the Military Service: Army, Navy, Air Forces and Marines. In December 2021, these foar ordinary guys will take part in an extraordinary event and row across the Atlantic Ocean from the Canary Islands to Antigua to raise awareness and donations toward PTSD and Veteran suicide.
