Starting today thru Friday, March 16, 2018, McPhail Fine Art is pledging to donate 20% of all purchases* of "Ever On Watch: The Sabine Pass Lighthouse" and "Lonely Sentinel: The Sabine Bank Lighthouse" to The Sabine Pass Lighthouse - Cameron Preservation Alliance's efforts to restore the Sabine Pass Light to its former glory. And yes, both pieces have been specially discounted for this event.
First lit in 1857, this historic site has weathered countless hurricanes, marsh fires, and even a Civil War Battle, but time has proven its greatest threat as years of exposure have taken their toll on the tower. The Cameron Preservation Alliance has a long range plan to restore the entire site, but it all begins with shoring up the foundation and rehabilitating the existing tower masonry, which by itself comes to an estimated cost of $750,000.00. Once this goal is reached additional phases will include reconstruction of the keeper's quarters, out buildings, and boardwalk, with plans to house a museum at the site.
Your purchase of either of these pieces will help raise money toward the site's restoration, while giving you a visual reminder of the history you're helping to save. So while art may not save the world, it can help to save the Sabine Pass Light.
