Aetheria Foundation Fundraiser: Willie Nelson, Jessica SImpson, Kinky Friedman, Peter Max, Larry Hagman

 

DALLAS and FORT WORTH, Texas, Jan. 25

On February 10, 2007, some of Texas biggest stars fall in place to help area art students find their true calling in life. Willie Nelson, Jessica Simpson, Kinky Friedman, Larry Hagman and world renowned painter Peter Max will lend their name and signed memorabilia to The Aetheria Foundation to help raise money for The AetheriA Fund at Communities Foundation of Texas, a scholarship fund created to assist students pursuing their artistic capacities for the February 10th Variety event.

On a single Saturday in February, The Nokia Theater will host: AetheriA – An artclectic evening, featuring the Fort Worth Symphony, The Dallas Black Dance Theatre, and Willie Nelson & Family with special guest Jessica Simpson. Also in a very special appearance, patrons will enjoy “Taste of Cirque”. The event hopes to raise awareness of the combined Arts of the Metroplex.

The Auction inventory continues its momentum as well. Exclusive items include Original Art from Cirque du Soleil; Larry Hagman’s (JR) signature hat; a pair of Boot’s signed by Jessica Simpson, a Video/DVD Collection signed by Comedian/Actor Johnny Knoxville, as well as a signature guitar from country legend Willie Nelson. Peter Max will also contribute an original piece designed exclusively for the Aetheria Event. The original is among good company. Peter Max has always been ready to apply his creative talent to important global events and charities and has produced posters and other artwork for many such events, including Summit of the Americas, Gorbachev’s State of the World Forum, and the United Nations Earth Summit, for which he had designed a series of twelve stamps that became the best-selling stamps in U.N. history.

The Aetheria Scholarship Fund was established in 2007, working in unison with and managed by Communities Foundation of Texas whose roots trace back to 1953. Since then, more than $785 million in grants have been made by the Dallas-based foundation and it has grown to become one of the largest community foundations in the nation.
