It seems everywhere we go, there she is … Travel Paso’s executive director Danna Stroud. My wife and I were privileged to sit at her table on Feb. 13 for the Sweet Art Luncheon at Studios on the Park — a fundraiser for Studios and this year honoring board president and supporter extraordinaire Barbara Partridge.
What a special privilege to be a part of that event, and to witness a once-in-a-lifetime experience of Jim Brescia and Marjorie Hamon sharing a microphone to serenade Barbara with “Bridge Over Paso Robles,” a modified rendition of the Simon & Garfunkel tune.
More than just a luncheon to celebrate Barbara, the special event was a fundraiser for Studios to continue the work it has done — which includes bringing 3,000 local elementary-aged students through the showroom to expose them to various forms of fine art in 2017. The event brought in more than $57,000 in fundraising.
