Secretary: Alaine DiBenedetto

Alaine is owner of Canvas On the Rocks, a professional teaching artist for Greater Baton Rouge Arts Council, and Art Director for the Rose & Thorn Journal. Having grown up during the Vietnam era and lived through the travesty of soldiers’ treatment and non-welcome home effected her deeply. She vowed then that her heroes would never feel unloved and unappreciated again, and does her small part as a proud administrator for Op: Cigars for Warriors to share her passion for art, our warriors, and cigars.
