Local Artist Donates Painting of Kind-Hearted Rescue Goat for Good Cause at Twigg & Co. Pop-Up Marketplace this Weekend
During Twigg & Co’s Second Saturday event, today from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., a painting will be donated and tea will be poured to benefit Bianca, a local therapy goat who recently had surgery at NC State Veterinary Hospital.
When Tina Bozkurt saw a post about Bianca, she was inspired to capture her likeness and that of her son Flash. At Twigg & Co., Bozkurt will donate proceeds from the sale of the painting and offer items featuring the painting, such as notecards, in support of Bianca’s mounting veterinary costs. Bianca remains hospitalized at the vet clinic in Raleigh, but has nearly recovered from a radical double mastectomy she had in February.
Bozkurt is the owner / operator of The Timeless Teacup. On Saturday, she’ll brew several samples of tea by request. Tea is known to soothe its drinkers; Bianca’s calming presence does the same for her pasture companions, as well as humans in need of comforting. Bianca’s owner Kelly Gray will be assisting Bozkurt in sharing Bianca’s story and serving tea.
Find the The Timeless Teacup booth at Twigg & Co., 206 N. Sandhills Blvd., Aberdeen. The number is 910-757-0188.
