Kathie Lee Gifford of The Today Show has become a friend and supporter of client Anne Neilson this year, and was kind enough to fit a visit to Charlotte into her busy schedule recently for our "Love Thy Neighbor" Harvest Center fundraiser.
I was honored to help produce a holiday card for the Gifford Family featuring one of Anne's Angel Series paintings, "A Joyful Noise Unto The Lord". This simple 5x7 card included a hand-lettered signature and was printed on linen cardstock with a Stardream metallic gold envelope.
I delivered some envelopes to Weaver, Bennett and Bland in Downtown Matthews today and happened upon their just-delivered holiday cards. We designed this card last month using a watercolor painting of the law firm's beautiful building by Matthews-area artist (and client) Prudy Brott Weaver.
Our keynote speaker for the "Love Thy Neighbor" event last week, Kathie Lee Gifford, talked about her visit to Charlotte on The Today Show on Wednesday. Client and co-chair Anne Neilson became fast friends with Kathie Lee after sending a copy of her book earlier this year, a relationship that made her rare speaking appearance possible. Kathie Lee was delightful and gracious, and clearly enjoyed her time with us as much as we enjoyed having her.
