Benjamin Walls Gallery raises $90,000 for Jane Goodall Institute

Press release from Benjamin Walls Gallery:

The Benjamin Walls Gallery of Asheville helped raise ninety-thousand dollars for the Jane Goodall Institute on Friday, September 20th, 2019. The funds were raised by auctioning Benjamin’s art and tickets sales to an intimate fire side chat with Dr. Jane Goodall. With this effort The Benjamin Walls Galleries have now raised over a half million dollars for local and conservation charities. Benjamin’s life-long passion to connect people with the natural world is only matched by his drive to fund campaigns to protect endangered species and lands.

The Jane Goodall Institute’s five-decade mission has been to advance the vision and work of Dr. Goodall by protecting chimpanzees and inspiring people to conserve the natural world we all share by improving the lives of people, animals and the environment. This is why Benjamin has chosen JGI and echoes their fifty-year campaign by saying,

“It’s my mission to unite people with the natural world so they become engaged with protecting these amazing animals and places.”

Following a successful August Grand Opening on Broadway Street in Asheville, Benjamin is hosting a Walls Signature Event on Friday, October 11th from 6pm – 10pm, where he will share two new pieces and exciting news about a wildlife conservation victory.
