The Josephine Stone Portrait Fund
Give this beautiful lady a portrait.
Just shy of a year ago, our dear Managing Editor, Josephine Stone, died when a valet driver hit her in downtown Richmond, Virginia. We commemorated Josie in a special issue of our print 'zine, Quail Bell Express: Issue 1 (which you can still subscribe to today.) Now, in observance of the one-year anniversary of Josie's death and to forever carry on her memory, we would like to have a portrait of Josie hung up in Penny Lane Pub.
Josie worked at Penny Lane Pub throughout most of her college career; it was also the last place she stopped by to say 'hi' to friends before she died. She was on her way to a concert at The National, which lies only a few blocks from Penny Lane.
We are envisioning an elegant, simple portrait rendered in charcoal. It would be framed and displayed on one of the restaurant walls, along with a little plaque about Josie. Because we are a low-budget project run predominantly by college students and recent graduates, paying for this effort will be difficult. We already go over-budget on many of our projects. That's why we're asking for your help.
With your donation, The Quail Bell Crew would be able to cover the cost of custom-framing (about $100), the wall plaque (about $50), and the portrait artist's services ($100.) So we're looking to raise a total of $250-300. Please consider donating to the Josephine Stone Portrait Fund so we can honor Josie's memory in one of her most beloved places.
Thank you for your donation. We sincerely appreciate it.
The Quail Bell Crew
