Bleitz’s “Door County Living” Cover Painting Auctioned for Charity

The Pulse’s sister publication, Door County Living magazine, printed its first Philanthropy Issue in early 2009. The issue was devoted entirely to the spirit of giving, a thread that runs strong through the fabric of the Door County community. It was in this spirit that Craig Blietz, the artist behind the cover image, generously offered his work for auction to benefit a local cause.

Door County Living will auction the Blietz original painting, “Philanthropy,” by mail bid through August 15, 2009. The oil on panel painting, completed in early 2009, is 12 inches tall by 9 inches wide and will come framed. All proceeds from the winning bid will go to the Door County charity of the bidder’s choice.

The minimum bid for “Philanthropy” is $1,500, and the winner will be notified by telephone and announced in local publications.

All bid submissions should be mailed to:  “Philanthropy” C/O Door County Living, PO Box 404, Sister Bay, WI, 54234.
