Scottsdale contemporary abstract artist Niki Woehler, whose work can be found in top-tier galleries around the U.S. and in homes and businesses around the world, is donating a commissioned artwork worth up to $10,300 as a raffle item for supporters of locally-owned establishments in the Phoenix metro area.  

Across Arizona, there are more than 10,000 dining establishments that employ more than 229,000 people with annual restaurant sales of $13.4 billion, according to Arizona Restaurant Association. The coronavirus pandemic has deeply impacted these establishments and their employees, with the worst of the brunt felt by local restaurants.  

“I am doing this because no one starts a restaurant with the thought of getting rich, but because it’s a calling,” Niki Woehler said.  “Because it’s in their soul and their passion, much like an artist, I identify with them on a deep level. They’re artists in their craft, artists of cuisine, and I’m an artist that wants to support other artists.”

Anyone can enter the raffle by simply spending $30 or more on take-out, delivery or gift card at any Phoenix-area locally-owned restaurants.
