Pepsi Refresh Project Is Alive in Waynesville, NC

 I'm definitely a Coke person not a Pepsi person, but that discussion is a whole other blog. Pepsi is giving away millions to fund great ideas that will refresh the world, called Pepsi Refresh Project. There are 6 categories for anyone to submit ideas for the public to vote on.That idea can win a grant from $5000-$100,000 to make it happen.

In our wonderful town of Waynesville we are fortunate to have many art studios and galleries. There is one gallery called Studio Thirty Three which is owned by Diannah Beauregard, an extremely talented and caring woman. She has developed an idea; The Studio Earth Signature Series which is to create an affordable line of jewelry to support non-profit organizations. Her idea of supporting charities and community with art is unrelenting and always evolving. So the signature series was born as an affordable line of unique pieces that could be sold, both wholesale (to galleries across the U.S.), retail in her own gallery in Waynesville and on line at Studio Earth Signature Series is a charitable initiative that needs funding, lots of funding, to realize its goal. That is why Studio Thirty Three is rallying for votes to support the Pepsi grant of $50,000. It is also the reason that Studio Thirty Three has created this piece, the Amethyst, Spinel and Kunzite pendant slide to auction off in support of the critical monies needed to support the vision.

Studio Thirty Three is rallying for support from the community, from all of the organizations it has helped in the past and present with the developing Studio Earth Initiative. 

Andon-Reid Inn Bed and Breakfast is rallying for support from all of our friends. This is a great cause.

Your votes are vital and are needed now, so please vote for this worthwhile plan of bridging the world of art and social needs. Everyone thinks it’s a great idea – but now it’s time to act. WE NEED YOUR VOTES! Today and every day in the month of May. Vote now – it only takes a minute! 

Thank you Diannah for all you do!
