What’s one thing local news anchors Kristin Remington and Wendy Damonte of KTVN, sports legend Jackie Joyner-Kersee to radio heroes Bill, Connie and Trey of Alice 96.5 fm have in common? They have all donated their time to participate in the celebrity painted plate auction supporting the Komen for the Cure Foundation of Northern Nevada. Each plate is a custom one-of-a-kind piece of art and will be on permanent display at the brand new Signature Landscapes landscape campus in South Reno.
“I enjoy supporting local events and this charity means so much to the community,” says co-owner Lebo Newman. “We get an opportunity to give back and receive some really nice art in return. This is a great program.”
This isn’t the first time Signature Landscapes has participated in the charity auction. Last year Newman was high bidder on a number of great plates created by artists such as country music greats Reba McEntire and Dierks Bentley, singer Melissa Manchester and local cartoonist Brian Crane.
