A project of the Young Artists Awards

Artwork from the Pediatric Oncology/Hematology program at the Golisano
 Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida

The Young Artists Awards, a not for profit organization benefiting local
students in the arts now in its eleventh year, works with the staff at the 
Pediatric Oncology/Hematology program at the Golisano Children’s Hospital of
 Southwest Florida.

The organization donates and delivers art supplies to the hospital for the
children to use in a therapeutic setting throughout the year, and then mats, 
frames and exhibits selected pieces at various venues throughout the community.

100% of the proceeds from the sale of the children’s artwork goes to provide 
direct assistance to Southwest Florida families in crisis facing the financial challenges of childhood cancer through the “Family Emergency Fund”, created and
 funded by the Young Artists Awards.  This fund, administered by a social worker
at the hospital, helps families of kids with cancer with prescription costs, 
groceries, transportation and other items otherwise not covered.

Receiving – 9/27
Pick Up – 11/1
