Speed Painter Michael Israel Supports St. Vincent’s Healthcare Foundation

$105,000 ART AUCTION!

Michael WOWED and AMAZED a crowd of 1000 healthcare professionals and supporters during his performance at the beautiful Omni Hotel for St. Vincent’s Healthcare Foundation.

Ascension St. Vincent’s Foundation is a not-for-profit, philanthropic organization established in 1982 that is committed to enhancing the current and future healthcare needs of Jacksonville and the surrounding area.

Since its inception, the Foundation has provided more than $1 million in annual financial assistance to support the Mission of Ascension St. Vincent’s. Serving as a liaison between Ascension St. Vincent’s and our family of generous donors, the Foundation is rooted in the loving ministry of Jesus as a healer and devoted to putting our commitment to philanthropy into action. The Foundation supports Ascension St. Vincent’s: Community Outreach Ministries, capital building, and equipment needs.

The St. Vincent’s HealthCare Foundation is the entity that financially supports the mission of Jacksonville’s province of Daughters of Charity. The foundation and network, established in 1982, is dedicated to improving the present and future healthcare needs of the Jacksonville area, and has provided more than $1 million in support every year since its creation.[3]

The foundation stages fund-raising events throughout the year, including the Red Rose Ball, begun in 1982 and Jacksonville’s oldest charity ball. The 2008 event was attended by John Travolta and Kelly Preston, who helped collect over $1 million in donations.[4]

John Ash was the celebrity chef at the 10th annual Delicious Destinations event in 2011. The three-day event attracts over a dozen executive chefs from notable restaurants and resorts around the country to prepare their favorite dishes for donors at the Ponte Vedra Inn and Club.[5][6]

St. Vincent’s HealthCare Foundation is also a charity recipient of proceeds from The Players Championship, and conducts a two-day charity golf tournament early in the week known as The Tradition.[7]

Michael Israel

Was there ever a time when you attended a fundraiser so extraordinary that you would remember it for the rest of your life?

$250,000! Going twice!

So exhilarating that the entire room jumped from their seats, shouted, and gasped out loud? Then you found yourself emotionally charged and in a bidding war with others offering insane money for an artwork painted right in front of your eyes?

Sold for $250,000!

Charities must attract, engage, and energize the top 2% of their communities to survive. Michael Israel, America’s original live-action artist, makes it easy.

Described as ‘Cirque du Soleil meets Picasso”, Michael Israel paints larger-than-life canvasses with iconic images in rhythm to high-energy music live on-stage.

He has a worldwide fan base of 100 million people. His Hero video has garnered over 14 million views on YouTube. Michael has performed for Presidential and Olympic events, fortune 500 companies, and was the featured artist for a $158.2 million renovation celebration for the DIA, which is America’s sixth-largest museum. He has shared stages with such luminaries as Warren Buffett, Garth Brooks, Clarence Clemons, Bruce Springsteen, Jay Leno, Tony Robbins, Brooks and Dunn, the Temptations, Kevin Costner, Kevin Bacon, and more. More importantly, he has helped over 100 charities. His portrait of Warren Buffett sold for $100,000 to benefit Girls Inc of Omaha.

Companies and casinos pay large fees for Michael’s performances, but when he does a benefit show for a charity, he does not charge a performance fee. His shows and art have raised millions of dollars. His philanthropic vision spills over into a bottom-line driven focus to help charities. His team also helps charities secure sponsorships, positive media, and ticket sales in addition to proceeds from his show and art sales.

Guests of Beaux-Arts were awestruck by Michael during their signature fundraiser, Up on the Rooftop at the Museum of Art Ft. Lauderdale. Sponsorship and ticket sales for an encore the following year reached record levels.

For a gala for the United Way of Chester County, Pennsylvania, they had planned an admission fee of $250 per couple, but with Michael as the featured artist, the seats sold out at $1,000 a couple. Michael’s paintings also sold out; the first one sold for $55,000.

Executive VP Chris Saello said, “Best event ever! Michael is a game-changer for us, he’s energized our organization!” Before leaving that evening, sponsors promised large donations if they could get Michael back for a repeat performance.

Sherrye McBryde, Director, The Susan G. Komen, Arkansas – “His ability to translate the true meaning of our organization onto canvas was amazing. He made the crowd go crazy. He drove fundraising dollars higher than ever before!”

Michael has appointed a charity committee to award a limited number of benefit performances each year.

Michael Israel’s Art Raises $400,000 for Teammates for Kids Fundraiser at Harrah’s Casino and Resort in Kansas City

“Performing in the Dark: How a Flashlight Show Earned $110,000 for Education”

“Performing in the Dark: How a Flashlight Show Earned $110,000 for Education”

Well, I’ve always said my show is the real deal and would work in a field on the top of a milk crate with two boy scouts holding flashlights… I never thought I’d have to prove it but, a while back, I was performing in a clear tent for about 100 people on a very eclectic ranch with a donkey, chickens, and other animals…LOL!

Just as I was about to go to the stage, all the fancy programmed show lighting glitched out. It was pitch black!

My show manager literally put two flashlights on the stage… and we rocked the house or should I say tent. After the show, my art sold for $110,000 to benefit the Glendora Educational Foundation!
