We were privileged to also have Blake Barrios of the esteemed Blake Barrios & Rebellium Studio bring his love of philanthropy, vision, and expression to life, through the creation of the hand-painted magnum of the Zakin. Using oil paints, Blake created a one-of-a-kind, hand-painted rendering of Jan on a 2019 Magnum of Zakin Reserve wine. Barrios, often collaborating with non-profit foundations, musicians, athletes, and vintners, among others, is known to create a bottle that will fetch the highest bidding from discerning connoisseurs and art critics alike.
John Bessolo, aka Johnny B’s personality captured the audience, driving an energy and creating momentum, second to none. The result of Johnny B’s efforts seeded the foundational raise for the local pet rescue, the Jameson Animal Rescue Ranch and their participation in CatWalk FurBaby. On February 9, 2023 EYSIAN IMPACT kicks off New York City Fashion Week, with The Bissell Pet Foundation, SoHo Muse and Runway 7 a fashion show where fur babies benefit.
