Once in a lifetime, if you are very, very lucky, you get the opportunity to work with an artist of immense magnitude.... An artist whose work has attracted worldwide acclaim and has been celebrated in Rolling Stones Magazine and The Huffington Post no less... An artist whose work has been supported and feted by Depeche Mode, Bryan Cranston, Will Ferrell and Ricky Gervais to name but a few of the celebrities clamouring to obtain his works. And now, ladies and gentlemen, it's our turn.
Frankie and Andy's has been chosen to work on a joint initiative with one of the four greatest living artists of his genre, 'Mr' Warhol himself. No, we aren't monkeying around, it's the absolute truth. 'Mr' Warhol has painted a beautiful abstract depiction of our mission, using our special Frankie and Andy's colors and his team are offering this astonishing work of art to be auctioned as a fund raiser to benefit his own charity of choice...and ours.
He wants to help us raise funds to give Snazzy, Meemaw, Meryl Streep, Justin Timberlake, Tom Hanks and the rest of the gang the very best life possible, as well as helping his own beloved friends across the border in Southwestern Ontario. You see, Mr Warhol is better known as Pockets Warhol, the famous Capuchin monkey who has created stunning visual masterpieces on canvas that have shaken the art world to it's very foundations.....and he lives in a monkey sanctuary called Story Book Farm Primate Sanctuary, just outside of Toronto, Canada, with 19 other Monkeys who all needed a soft landing and forever home. Sound familiar? This was a match made in heaven! And now you have a chance to own a 'Warhol' of your very own!
Congratulations to winner, Pat Mitchell!
It took 7 years over 3 continents during which time there were thousands of miles of training runs but on Sunday October 3rd 2021 Frankie and Andy’s Place Board Member Krystle Andrews completed what only 1,200 people around the world have been able to achieve.
