JoEllen Brydon painting requested by Governor General for Charity Breakfast

A JoEllen Brydon painting was recently auctioned off at an event held by his Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada.

The breakfast event was a fundraiser for the United Way, part of the Governor General's Work Charitable Campaign.

His Excellency personally thanked JoEllen for her contribution. He joked that he had been up all night cooking for the breakfast.

The event was attended by over 450 people, and was held at the Governor General's residence at Rideau Hall.
