Meet John Stanisci, a professional illustrator for Marvel and DC Comics for over 18 years. John has worked on characters like Spider-Man, The Hulk, and Batman – and has most recently worked on Batman Beyond.

John will be the special guest artist at an Art Auction Fundraiser hosted by the Junior Woman's Club of Sparta.  All proceeds from the Art Auction will benefit the Northern NJ Veteran's Memorial Cemetery.

 

This evening of art is organized by the JWCS to support the Vietnam Veterans Chapter of Walkill Valley in their efforts to bring a veterans’ cemetery to Northern New Jersey. There are almost 10,000 veterans in Sussex County, and a total of 125,000 in the five northern counties of New Jersey …. yet the closest state veterans’ cemetery is nearly 200 miles away. When developed, this cemetery will bring a final resting place for local veterans closer to home. All proceeds from the evening will benefit the VVA’s fundraising efforts for the cemetery. For more information on the cemetery, visit the Wallkill Valley Vietnam Veterans of America’s website at www.vva1002.org

The Art Auction will be held on Friday March 1st, at the Skyview Golf Club. The event begins with a preview of the art at 7:30pm followed by the auction at 8:30pm.

The auction will feature art in all media and price ranges, sports and music memorabilia and designer handbags.  Some of John Stanisci's works will also be available at the auction.

Tickets for the event are $30 per person and include hors d'oeuvres, desserts, soft drinks, and coffee – a cash bar is also available. Tickets can be purchased by contacting the Junior Woman's Club at jwcsparta@gmail.com or 973-300-7309. Tickets may also be purchased by visiting J Thomas Jewelers or Sparta Books. For more information about the event please visit www.jwcsparta.org.

This will be a fun evening out while supporting two great organizations – the Northern NJ Veteran's Memorial Cemetery and the Junior Woman's Club of Sparta. Purchase your Art Auction tickets today.
