SmARTy Dogs are popping up around the Village

Pictured (l-r) are Nelson Hidalgo, director of the TotalBank Banking Center Division; senior vice president Renato Salazar; SmARTy Dog director Heather Bettner, Mayor Cindy Lerner, and Luis de la Aguilera, TotalBank president and chief marketing officer.

We had a whole bunch of new SmARTy Dog puppies joining the pack last month, and TotalBank became one of our newest sponsors.

As you know Pinecrest has been busily getting puppies sponsored so we can beautify the Village. We have a long list of artists who have come forth to offer their talent and creativity to paint the dogs and beautify Pinecrest. In addition we want to welcome visitors to Pinecrest as well.

The best part is that at the end of the program we will auction the puppies off to new homes and 100 percent of the money goes to buy Smartboards for the Pinecrest public schools.

So walk around Pinecrest, enjoy our puppies and decide who you would like to take home!

At the age of 12, Cuban-born artist Mano came to the United States with his older brother as part of Operation Pedro Pan. For the next five years he lived in Westfield, NJ with family friends until he was reunited with his parents.

Although Mano graduated as an electrical engineer and successfully practiced his profession for more than 20 years, he always felt the need to express himself artistically and beyond the design concepts of engineering. Mano has now traded components and electronics for a new career in art.

He is a self-taught artist who has developed a unique expressionist-style dominated by faces and the female form. Usually his faces are merely a point of departure for Mano to explore the interplay of contrasting colors on a myriad of surfaces. When asked what inspires him, Mano says “Everything! People, music, nature — all lead me on journeys through the imagination where images converge and forms and color captivate me. Observation of the mind’s creation allows me to assimilate and recreate, in my own style, the shades of color and images of form”.

Please visit his website at Mano Fine Art. Thank you TotalBank for sponsoring this SmARTy Dog!

The SmARTy Dog auction will be held March 28 at Pinecrest Gardens, 5:30 -6:30 p.m., with cocktails; auction begins at 7:30 p.m. We are so fortunate to have Jim Gall as our auctioneer. Jim is a Pinecrest resident and his children all attend Pinecrest Schools. Thank you, Jim.

Please sponsor a SmARTy Dog The more dogs we have, the more funds we raise for Smart Board technology. We can multiply your sponsorship investment two to three time or more at the auction. And you will have a beautiful do to represent your company, and it will promote your company in Pinecrest for six months. Call us at Prince Media to find out more about this program; 305-7750113.
