Please support Phil!
As most of you know, my Dad, Phil, has made the difficult decision to close Studio Bongiorno as of May 31, 2017. A number of factors influenced his decision: health issues, lease conflicts and a bit of burn out. Though the closure of the Studio is a big loss for the community, it’s clearly the right decision for Phil as he needs to put his health first. His decision is a brave one, risking doing what is difficult and scary in the moment for what is right for him and our family in the long term.
In order for Phil to focus on his health, he needs some money and, perhaps more importantly, he needs freedom from financial worry so he can heal his body and make the space to dream up his next creative project. Since Phil, like many humans, finds it difficult to ask for help, let’s spare him the stress, shall we, and repay him for the incredible support he’s provided everyone as a friend, an artist, a truth-teller, a socially-conscious and thoughtful man, a man who adores Andrea and Shannon, and, most especially adores me. Please donate what you can – any amount, as every dollar makes a difference.
The highest donor gets an autographed photo of me!
Dad is throwing a funeral/party/wake on May 20, 2017. Tell your friends and see you there!
