Press Release Fun: The Joe and Shirl Scholarship

This is worth noting. An online auction that helps to let lower income kids attend art programs.  But I’ll let the scholarship’s founder, Jarrett Krosoczka, tell you more himself:

As Jarrett wrote me recently:

“I started a scholarship at the Worcester Art Museum for needy youth who have unique familial situations, in memory of my grandparents. Every year on Cyber-Monday, I’ll launch an online auction to support the “Joe and Shirl Scholarship”.
I’m hoping to build up some buzz pre-Thanksgiving to get people excited
I’m excited.  This is a great idea.  Many thanks to Jarrett for the heads up!

    Rats — I was hoping I’d be the only one who heard of this so that I could win everything! Especially the original art from PUNK FARM — oh my.
