Artist Heller sponsors benefit Feb. 6 for Tri County Humane Society

BOCA RATON — Renowned international multi-media artist Yaacov Heller will present “Love Is …” to benefit the Tri County Humane Society.

The event, scheduled for Monday, February 6 at Heller’s Gallery 22 at 320 Esplanade in Royal Palm Place, is a celebration of the shelter’s work to rescue and re-home abandoned dogs and cats.

From 5:30 – 7:30 pm, guests are invited to enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres in Gallery 22’s studio and sculpture garden, and view Heller’s extensive display of sculpture, painting and jewelry.

The event includes a silent auction of Heller’s exclusive artwork and offers an opportunity for attendees to bid on unique gifts for Valentine’s Day, a wedding, and other upcoming celebrations. Or just treat yourself! Visit to see the creativity and depth of his collections.

Heller has long been a strong supporter of Tri County Humane Society, a no-kill animal shelter in Boca Raton. Recognizing that the shelter has confronted many unexpected costs in the past few months, he’s opening his gallery, Gallery 22, for a gala fundraiser.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit Tri County Humane Society. Tri County provides shelter, food and medical care to hundreds of animals every day until they can find their forever home. The shelter has seen a significant increase in the number of abandoned pets, especially those in poor medical condition. As a private non-profit, these increased medical bills have put a severe strain on the shelter’s resources.

Yaacov Heller’s artwork is included in the collections of kings and presidents. His jewelry graces royalty and Hollywood’s elite. But as someone who is constantly looking forward, he never forgets to glance back. While Heller’s vision is global, his heart is rooted in his community.

Complimentary parking is available at Royal Palm Place
