Participating local Artist Dan Rizzie

Dan Rizzie is one of the 44 participating artists who have donated a piece of art for auction. He is also one of the many who looks back fondly on his memories of Eileen Roaman.

Eileen was one of the first people I met 20 plus years ago, when I first moved to the area. She was a supporter of my art since we first met. And a real philanthropist. Anyone who knew her knew that whatever she did, she would always back it up with substance.

My feelings about this event are truly heartfelt. So when April Gornik called to invite me to participate—together with Colin hosting, who always has his heart in things—I felt this was appropriate. I am terrifically honored to be a part of Eileen’s legacy.”
