Art of Giving 2019 Fundraiser Biggest Yet
It's Share Art Heal's 4th year as a sponsor of Art of Giving. We provide the canvases!
In just 7 years, Dell Children's Art of Giving has raised $650,000 for art and music therapy. These therapies are the best non-medicinal healing and pain management tools in modern medicine, and art and music help kids just be kids during long, tough hospital days.
Art of Giving provides a unique opportunity to teach the next generation about philanthropy through the creation of one-of-a-kind works of art. Patients and their families, artists and children of the Dell Children’s Trust join with the art therapy team to create masterpieces that support our Art and Music therapy programs at Dell Children’s Medical Center. Each masterpiece created helps art & music therapy programs at Dell Children’s Medical Center.
This year the Art of Giving raised the most money in 1 year, $180,000, and was the largest event with 17 artists. Congratulations to the Dell Children's Trust for another stellar Art of Giving.
Special congratulations to Elizabeth Hendley, Art Therapist at Dell Children's and founder of the Art of Giving Fundraiser. Elizabeth is on the Share Art Heal Advisory Board and she leads an art project for Share Art Heal each year at the Austin Police Department Youth Leadership Program. She also gave us some great suggestions when we were developing our art kits in 2014. She's been with Share Art Heal since our first week back in 2014. Thank you for all you do for Share Art Heal Elizabeth and congratulations again on the biggest Art of Giving yet.
