Metamorphosis 2010: The Kyrie Foundation

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

I am so excited to get to tell you all about the third annual, Kansas City fundraiser, silent art/gift auction to benefit The Kyrie Foundation.
The Kyrie Foundation is a non-profit organization raising awareness and research funds to fight pediatric brain cancer.  Brain cancer is the #1 cancer-killer of children, with a 10% diagnoses increase since The Kyrie Foundation began, just three years ago.  The Kyrie Foundation is committed to funding and finding a cure.  All proceeds, from this event, will go to support The Kyrie Foundation Tissue Bank Fund, which is scheduled to launch the only tissue bank of its kind in conjunction with the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and the University of California-San Francisco.
I was blessed enough to be asked to participate, in this event, last year and was, completely, thrilled to be asked back, again, this year.  For those of you that may have noticed, this is the reason my Etsy shop Lofty Designs is nearly empty.  I have donated most of its contents to this worthy cause.  Here are the deets for the auction.
