For those of you who were at our Napa and Grand Rapids shows, you witnessed the live paintings of Mike Lewis during our set. What an amazing experience to watch him create wonderful works in a matter of minutes. As I said during the shows, we are excited to auction Mike’s portraits of “Superman” and “The Unknown Soldier” to benefit What Kind of World Do You Want Foundation. All Proceeds we receive will go to important charities I support like Wounded Warriors, Operation Homefront, Augie’s Quest, and Flyin’ Heroes. We’ll be auctioning off “Superman” starting today, with proceeds benefiting Augie’s Quest “The Unknown Solider” will start after bidding ends on “Superman.” Bidding will last two weeks for each item. Please bid high and enjoy Mike’s piece of Five For Fighting in your home, while helping others along the way.
Auction Starts Today (Thursday, Aug. 21) at 10am PST
Join the auction and bid on Mike’s amazing work here – charitybuzz.com/fiveforfighting
