Ethno Cares & Reesha The Connect Host ART 4 LUPUS, A Solo Art Exhibit Introducing Mister Sampson, At Maxwell Dickson Gallery in Downtown Los Angeles, CA.
The Lupus Community was introduced to TaVon Sampon aka Mister Sampson on Thursday, August 13, 2015 during his Art 4 Lupus Exhibit and Maxwell Dickson Gallery in Downtown Los Angeles, CA. The Red (Purple) Carpet was jam packed with Lupus Supporters, Tastemakers, Socialites, and Urban Young Professionals.
TaVon is a Lupus Survivor and he shares his story through his paint brush. The hundreds of attendees had the opportunity to view exclusive artwork from Mister Sampson while enjoying complimentary cocktails and a music soundtrack from the DJ. The platform served as an education space for others to learn more about Lupus and how to support the awareness campaigns for the disease. A portion of the proceeds were donated to Alliance For Lupus Research (ALR) to benefit Lupus Research.
