May is Brain Tumor Awareness Month!
Jack’s Angels Foundation is hosting a unique and first event of its kind, “ART FOR JACK, Celebrating Children’s Art”, featuring works from Professional, Amateur, Student, and Very Young Artists for Silent and Live Auction. Enjoy children’s art, exhibits from local artists, free art workshops for your children, and live entertainment including talented young musical artists, and professional musicians, and magic acts. Most importantly, 100% of our net proceeds benefit urgently needed research for DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma) at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
Over 4000 children are diagnosed with a brain tumor each year; in children, malignant brain tumors are the leading cause of death from non-blood cell cancers. Little progress has been made in 30 years with the most devastating varieties of tumors, like DIPG which has a less than 1% survival rate. Funding for research is crucial for saving children’s lives and improving survivors’ quality of life.*
This charitable auction is a unique opportunity to celebrate life in art and support urgently needed research. Lead the way in raising awareness for this need, and act locally by supporting Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. For more information about DIPG, visit: www.jacksangels.org/About_DIPG.html.
