Art for a Cause


A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend the San Francisco General Hospital Foundation Heroes and Hearts luncheon at AT&T Park. It’s always such a wonderful event for a great cause. I was there because I was one of the heart artists. I created a large heart titled Tree of Life that was purchased by Wells Fargo. This is the third heart I have created for the SFGHF and my hearts have raised over $150k for the foundation. I am honored to be part of such an important organization. Another cool thing was that Wells Fargo has a mural outside of the office in SF that includes a big picture of my heart. Shannon Amidon Heart at ATT Park
