There will be an exciting live auction featuring the artwork of the children and artists have created together and the work of a special feature artist. A silent auction of beautiful artwork and other donated items will be available as well.
The 2018 Gala will give local children with arthritis an introduction to the arts and offer an opportunity to explore an alternative form of self-expression. Too often these children have been limited in their choice of activities due to the disease. Research has shown that art can be a beneficial outlet for anyone suffering mentally or physically. These children, supported by a mentor artist, are come together to fight their arthritis by raising awareness about the disease and assisting others who advocate on their behalf. In addition, the mentor artists as well as other local artists, donate artwork to the auction to assist in raising funds to support the Arthritis Foundation's mission.
