Art for Arthritis gives local children diagnosed with juvenile arthritis an introduction to the arts and offer an opportunity to explore an alternative form of self-expression. These children, supported by a mentor artist, come together to fight arthritis by raising awareness about the disease. In addition to the mentor artists, other local artists, donate artwork to the auction to raise funds for the Arthritis Foundation.
Art for Arthritis attendees can look forward to an evening of hors d’oeuvres, delicious dinner, delectable desserts, cash bar, diamond raffle, and of course, beautiful artwork available for purchase. There will be a silent auction of beautiful artwork and other donated items, an exciting live auction featuring the artwork the children and artists have created together and the work of a special feature artist as well as a mission message from the arthritis community to learn about the struggles these children and their families face on a regular basis.
