The color blue symbolizes wisdom, confidence, intelligence, and faith.

It is the color of the sea and sky, from which we draw revelation and into which we bravely venture. It was the muse of master painters and legendary musicians, and the color best loved by our dearest inspiration, Thea Kay Leopoulos.

Chairing Into the Blue 2019:

Trish Roberson

Trish Roberson, owner of Roberson’s Fine Jewelry, was born and raised in Augusta, Ark., and carries her small-town, community-centric values with her. She and her husband have been long-term supporters of Easter Seals, Carti, JDRF, 20th Century Club, Thea Foundation and many more. “I absolutely love the quote from Picasso that says: ‘Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life,’” she says. “I believe this quote reflects the change that the Thea Foundation is making in the lives of these kids.” Trish is thrilled to be chairing the 2019 Into the Blue.
