The Art Auction Benefit is ArtWorks’ biggest fundraiser of the year, raising more than $130,000 for the organization. All proceeds enables ArtWorks to expand and enhance its programs, allowing many more children with serious illnesses, and their siblings, to experience the healing power and joy of the arts.
ArtWorks is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing children and young adults suffering from chronic and life-threatening illnesses, and their siblings, access to creative and performing arts programs that encourage the use of the creative process as a vehicle for healing, communication, self-expression and personal development. ArtWorks seeks to empower, validate and honor these children by offering them the hands-on experience and materials with which to create, as well as the opportunity to publicly share their artistic accomplishments.
