Art for Arthritis pairs local children affected by juvenile arthritis with area artists together to create unique pieces of art. The art is auctioned off at the Art for Arthritis art auction to raise money for nationwide arthritis research and advocacy, as well as local programs and services.
Most people don’t think about children having arthritis but more than 8,400 children in the North Carolina area have some form of this painful disease. Art for Arthritis is a one-of-a-kind experience uniting local artists and children impacted by juvenile arthritis. Together, they turn a potentially challenging and painful situation into beautiful and inspiring pieces of art. Attendees can look forward to an evening of drinks, heavy appetizers, a silent auction and an exciting live auction featuring the artwork the children and artists have created together.
