Wine and Art - February 24, 2018

5th annual Wine and Art Party benefiting the Children's Tumor Foundation! Hosted by Larry and Anne Trussell at the UCA Elizabeth House. Featuring original artwork by Steve and Vivian Griffith. The Griffiths are providing 100 original 8X10 pieces of artwork. As in years past, these are available to the first 100 people who purchase a premier ticket for $125. (You do not have to be present to receive your artwork). Regular tickets (do not include artwork) are $30. 

Unlike some fundraisers, there is no overhead for this event. 100% of the proceeds goes to the Chldren's Tumor Foundation thanks to our generous donors and sponsors! Our mission is to raise awareness and research funds to help find a cure for neurofibromatosis (NF), a genetic disease that affects 1:3000 births. NF causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body, including the brain and spinal cord. These tumors can lead to disfigurement, pain, scoliosis, learning disabilities, blindness, deafness, and some tumors can become cancerous. Some people may actually look normal while this disease wreaks havoc in their bodies. There is no cure. However, with advances in research over the last few decades, we have made great strides in treatment to improve the quality and quantity of life for those affected. I KNOW that we can also find a cure!

We have some great silent auction items this year! The very popular Wine Stopper game will be back! Steve Griffith will again be creating a live painting for silent auction this year, AND he will be joined by one of our NF Heroes and artist extraordinaire, 11 yo Zane Pogue, who will help create this one of a kind piece of art!! As always we will be serving fabulous food and wine while you enjoy some great music! Our location this year is the UCA Elizabeth House in Conway where you will have convenient parking.
