“Cortney Wall is a superb artist. Cortney recently performed at two Building Homes for Heroes charitable events. One of which was our Annual Honoree Dinner that took place in June in New York at the beautiful Battery Gardens Restaurant. The other event took place in August at our Annual Long Island Golf Outing at the Rockville Links Country Club in Rockville Centre. Cortney created two beautiful patriotic inspired paintings. The paintings were auctioned off at the end of the evening at both events and helped raised funds for Building Homes for Heroes. Thank you Cortney for your support, interest and devotion to our Veterans. We commend you. We look forward to seeing you next year!”
