Kids receiving treatment at the Jimmy Everest Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at the Childrens Hospital of Oklahoma have been creating their own masterpieces during art therapy sessions to donate to the events silent auction. All proceeds benefit the Oklahoma Childrens Cancer Association.
The night is like an awards show, complete with a red carpet, photographers and the University of Oklahoma womens basketball team to escort the kids, said Rhonda Williston, event spokesperson.
Its wonderful to see these children be the center of attention. This event provides them with very special memories that they will hold onto for a long time, Williston said. If you havent personally been affected by cancer in one way or another, it is a great way to reach out to those who have and let them know that they are not alone.
Art with a Heart runs from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Oklahoma History Center, 2401 N. Laird. Tickets are $30. For more information, visit artwithaheartokc. com. Courtney Silva
