To Celebrate 25 years of golfing for a cause, we are auctioning one item—a painting donated from Julie and Hal Hanson, of the Jeff Hanson Art Studio. Proceeds will support the Hunger Stoppers Food Mobile to help feed the hungry in the food “deserts” of Kansas City.
This heavily textured acrylic painting, titled Tuscany Awaits (22” x 40” x 2.5″), was created by Julie and Hal for our golf tournament, in memory of their son Jeffrey Owen Hanson. Jeff was a visually impaired artist who passed away in December 2020, at the age of 27, from a brain tumor. Upon his death, Jeff had generated $7.5 million for charity with his artwork. Jeff loved the Resurrection golf tournament, both as a hole sponsor and golfer (he played on the 2017 tournament championship team). Please honor Jeff’s memory by supporting causes he truly loved and bid high. Not only will you help fight hunger, but also continue Jeff’s dream to change the world through art and get closer to his philanthropic goal of $10 million to charity! Learn more about Jeff here.
Silent bidding closes Monday, October 18, 2021, at 4:00 pm CT. All bids are online only. We will update bids daily on our website. The winner (highest bid) will be announced at the golf awards ceremony at the Country Club of Leawood following the tournament. A representative from Jeff Hanson Art will make arrangements with the winner for pickup or delivery of the painting.
