Community Supporter: Art to Beat Cancer Auction Held Tonight

Art to Beat Cancer

Tonight, the University of Louisville's James Graham Brown Cancer Center will be featuring over 60 works of art as an auction event in order to benefit cancer research. Art to Beat Cancer supports Kim and Doyle Glass Endowment for Developmental Therapeutics. Doyle’s wife Kim is currently battling Stage IV breast cancer, and the Glasses have established the endowment with a goal of raising $1 million to provide critical funding to move new cancer-fighting drugs from the research stage to the clinical setting.

Bidding is currently open for each work of art on the Bidding For Good website. Additionally, for only $50 you can participate in an art ticket raffle for a 1 in 24 chance to win one of 18 paintings, each valued at up to $4,000. People also are welcome to make a cash donation, which will be matched on the Bidding for Good website. Winning bids will be announced at the event.

Artists include over 18 international artists and will be held from 5:30-9:30 p.m., Friday, Nov. 21 in the Green Building, 732 E. Market St. For more information, contact Jill Scoggins, 502-852-7461, jill.scoggins@louisville.edu or Michael Neumann, 502-562-4642,
