I’m honored to announce that I am an invited artists for “The 100” – a fiberart fundraiser to benefit the American Cancer Society – to be held on Wednesday, February, 4, 2015. The goal for this event is to raise $10,000 in one day.
Cancer has robbed from the world several people that I dearly love. I do not know anyone whom cancer has not affected. More than a year ago I had a diagnosis of a rare salivary gland cancer. I was extremely fortunate in that I received my diagnosis in a very early stage and surgery completely removed it from me; I am considered cured of that particular cancer. Others are not so fortunate and have endured long and difficult battles to combat their disease. Research dollars are desperately needed to continue to find ways to help provide better treatments that extend the quality of life and ultimately to provide a cure.
Through Fiberart For A Cause, Virginia Spiegel, the mastermind behind the cause, has raised a total of $240,000. The goal with this fundraiser is to bring that total to the quarter of a million dollar mark.
Please get involved and make a difference. Only 100 patrons can participate! Your donation will ensure that you will receive a piece of artwork created by one of the 100 participating international fiber artists. All artwork is valued at least $100, and the piece I am donating is worth more than three times that amount.
For more information, please visit Fiberart For A Cause. In the coming weeks I’ll share a hint of my donated artwork. Please spread the word about this event!
