14AkibaSchechterAAs is customary at benefit parties, there were long tables with fabulous things to bid on. But you also 14AkibaSchechterBhave to have a caricaturist. Moi! I was pleased to be part of the entertainment along with magician Randy Bernstein and stilt-walker, juggler Ken Schultz. This was a posh but very relaxed fundraising bash for an orthodox Jewish school in Hyde Park. Members of the community also performed: violin, piano and a polyphonic vocal group. Great fun! Thank you, Debbi.———————-

13Bikes1b

It was pouring.  I was set up under one of the ten white tents.  Every twenty minutes or so someone came by 13Bikes1with a broom stick to poke the tent roofs so that the accumulated water could release to the ground.  Good grief! Saturday had been a fine sunny mid-September day and Monday was going to be glorious again, but the Sunday in between, yukk, buckets of rain all day.  It was particularly painful, since this was all about biking.  Not only that, it was about raising money for custom built bikes for disabled kids—as gifts to them.  By 10:30 a.m. when I was setting up under the soggy tent, a set of bikers was 13BikesAalready coming back from their benefit ride. I could see umbrellas and hoodies, but some people just walked around soaked.  Predictably, attendance at this event was low, though it was a carefully planned benefit.  I suggested to the organizer, that it would be best if I worked in color.  Color takes a little longer, but there wasn’t going 13BikesBto be a line anyway.  And color would possibly cheer things up a bit.  I ended up drawing only eight people in two hours.  There just weren’t many people around and those who did come seemed more concerned about grabbing something hot to drink.  Good work, Tamara! Try again next year, don’t give up.————————

Solidarity Bridge is a charitable organization focused on Bolivia and Paraguay. This Benefit, held in the Women’s Club in Evanston, was called “Fiesta of Heroes”.  We celebrated the the doctors  who donated their time to heal the sick in Bolivia. So, naturally, I drew everybody, doctors and donors,  with a red hero cape.  I love doing benefits, everybody ‘s so up.  Thank you, Ann and Jayleen!

This party was a benefit for the SEDOL Foundation.  It also happened to be the double-birthday celebration of its chairman David Raye and his wife, Donna—soul mates who met in kindergarten. (At left is my drawing of them.)  A hundred-and-fifty of their friends were there to make this occasion festive, in a casual sort of way, at Mickey Finns in Libertyville.  I feel privileged to have been chosen as the entertainment.  David gave a little talk about the work of SEDOL, a foundation that helps children with hearing impairments.  I was busy drawing at one side of the bar, while he talked with warmth, wit and tremendous energy and enthusiasm at the other end of the room.  My subjects were bright teachers, wise-cracking lawyers, eager gophers, photogenic importers of handmade goods,  toothy cooks, fidgety music students, former marines, reticent marketing types, burly firefighters, elegant  wearers of spooky jewelry,  sweet drummers…just your not-so-ordinary collection of engaged, smart, compassionate, good-humored people. Can you tell, I enjoyed this gig thoroughly.  There will be more birthdays and more benefits, I hope.  Best to you SEDOL!  Happy birthday, David and Donna!
