great opportunity to support the arts and cultural edu- cation of the Tri-State. Last year the Huntington Museum of Art was able to serve more than 28000 children through their won- derful outreach programs and 49000 patrons total Buffy and Corky said. With this event HMA will be able to continue these programs and provide a unique experience for all of the children. Rob and Mary Johnson are both Huntington natives and they love living here for many reasons. They enjoy the small town atmosphere and think the region is a wonderful place to raise their daughter and to run their business. Rob is the morning news anchor for WSAZ NewsChannel 3 and Mary is the owner of Aladdins Art Gallery in Ashland Ky. The Johnsons love the quality and variety of exhibits HMA offers and note its an impressive Museum for such a small city. They also appreciate how the Muse- um creates a love of art for the youngest of kids. Their daughter learned so much about art and creativity from taking classes and camps each summer she has been active in them for more than a decade. Mary enjoyed classes and camps as a child too We have enjoyed the Museum Ball for years and are honored to be able to support the art culture of the Tri- State by Co-Hosting the event this year the Johnsons said. Were excited about the masquerade theme all the scrumptious food that will be offered and the silent auction packages sound fabulous However we also love dressing up for a great party Doug Korstanje and Susan Nicholas live in Huntington and are also from the Tri-State area. Doug grew up in Chesa- peake Ohio and Susan is from Milton West Virginia. They like that Huntington has many amenities of a big city with a small town sense of community and also think it a great place to raise their family. Most of the people they know find a way to help others and give back through volunteer work. Doug is the Director of Marketing and Community Relations for St. Marys Medical Center in Huntington and Susan is a morning anchor for WSAZ NewsChannel 3 in Huntington. Doug and Susan believe the Museum represents everything that is great about Huntington. It is part of the beauty of our city and the work that happens inside is a great partnership between the staff and the community volunteers they said. The look on a childs face when they experience art for the first time is even more priceless than some of the most valuable paintings and sculptures inside. Thousands of children are enriched each year when they visit the museum and when the Museum staff visits their schools. They consider the Museum Ball as a chance to cel- ebrate the amazing resources the Museum offers to Huntington and the Tri-State and were happy to serve as Co-Hosts. We love spending time with the people who are committed to the future of the Museum and if you havent been to this event then youre missing out on one of the most enjoyable ways to help a great cause they said.
