Their services include a patient navigation program, support groups information specialists, warmline volunteers, an extensive resource library, and more.
All artwork has been generously donated from local art collections. Written bidding begins at 6 p.m. Bids will be accepted until 8:45 p.m., when winners should arrive to check their bids and take home their selections. Payment is by cash, credit card or personal check.
The sale is made possible through the combined business, design and community skills of Julie Fulkerson and Alex Stillman and generous donations from local artists and art collectors. Additional support is provided by the Stebbins Family.
