Singer Solo Art Show to Benefit Encore

Judy Steed, a member of the Oak Park/River Forest Encore Chorale, is holding a solo mosaic show at the River Forest Public Library, 735 Lathrop Ave., during the month of May in the lobby of the library. Judy has generously decided that 50% of the proceeds from the show will be donated to Encore Illinois. The donation will help establish Encore’s new choral program (the Good Memories Encore Chorale) for Alzheimer’s patients and their caregivers.

A Personal Connection to Alzheimer’s

Judy’s generous donation from her art show is in honor of her mother, who died from the disease. Judy has already been Encore’s champion by encouraging parishioners at St. Giles’ Church in Oak Park to support the Good Memories Encore Chorale; a total of $604.00 was collected that day alone. 

Below are a few samples of Judy’s art:


Encore is deeply grateful to Judy Steed for extending herself to Encore in this generous way.

Come to the library, look at the art, and take some home for yourself or a loved one. You’ll be supporting Encore at the same time.
