Chris Giarrusso, A Good Cause And A 4-Year Old Supergirl

Stacy Korn writes for Bleeding Cool:

Amber Love and I do a event called Super Hero Weekend featuring Wonder Woman. Or Super Hero Weekend for shorter title. We raise money for SAFE in Hunterdon (A domestic violence shelter and services). We have done this for 7 years and raised around $45,000 total to date. This year we raised $4,000.

Vivian, a four-year old girl, dresses up and attends the event each year and has become a part of our Super Hero group. She told her Dad that Super Hero Weekend is better than Disneyworld! No higher praise from a child! Chris Giarrusso has generously donated sketches to the weekend, Vivian's Dad won the first sketch years ago and it hangs in her room. This year Vivian dressed as Supergirl.

I wanted to do something nice for the family, so I commissioned Chris to do a Supergirl sketch. I told him the story of Vivian and when I went to pay him, he instead donated the sketch!

Chris Giarrusso is his secret identity, but he is really a SUPER HERO!
