Support Shepherd Center patients participation in the Swim With Gentle Giants program at Georgia Aquarium as part of their rehabilitation by purchasing a raffle ticket for our Georgia Aquarium Violin by Antonio Barajas.
Antonio “Tonny” Barajas is a Mexican-American artist based in Mexico. The son of Mexican parents and raised in Georgia, Tonny values, appreciates and feels part of both cultures. Some time ago he began to capture images on violins as a hobby. The Georgia Aquarium violin came as a tribute to a place he admires and respects and as a thank you to the Shepherd Center in Atlanta, GA. In 2018 Tonny’s grandfather suffered an accident and was rehabilitated at the Shepherd Center. After many months in therapy and with the help of the staff, his grandfather was able to return home. Tonny used his love for the violin mixed with his creativity to deliver a one-of-a-kind instrument that can be admired or played. The proceeds of raffle tickets for this instrument will be donated to the Shepherd Center and the Georgia Aquarium.
The raffle will be held on Thursday, September 30th at the culmination of Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Month. Winner will be notified by email.
