The 27th Annual Emerald Awards were an unforgettable evening, and live-painter Giselle Denis added to the magic. Throughout the two-hour show, Giselle transformed a blank canvas into a masterpiece in front of the audience’s eyes. At the end of the show, the painting was raffled off, and one of our volunteers, Karmia Novak, was the lucky recipient.
