The Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge has commissioned porcelain artist Mary Belle Cordell to paint a picture of George Washington to be unveiled on February 17, 2013 at a fund raiser at a private home. The porcelain art picture will be auctioned off at the Freedom Foundation Ball on February 23, 2013 at the Coral Ridge Yacht Club in Fort Lauderdale.
I am very honored to be selected topaint a picture of one of our great presidents. Each year the Freedoms Foundation raises funds to send selected young people to Valley Forge, Pennsylvania to learn about our government.
Last year the Freedoms Foundation gave an award to the book “Happy Birthday Mr. Lincoln.” I was one of the writers featured in this book. I wrote about the porcelain dinnerware that has been used in the White House by each president.
