Auction for Kathleen
Chicago Creative Coalition’s immediate past president, Kathleen Kearns, is battling HER2+ cancer. Unfortunately, one of the realities of this cancer is you are never cured: you hope for long periods of remission, and each test – which are done frequently and regularly – ushers in another round of anxiety and worry.
There is also the financial burden: Kathleen, like many creatives, has a high deductible (that resets to $0 each year) that must be paid before benefits kick in. To give her some support, Kathleen’s friends in the creative community are holding an on-line auction of artwork, creative services and collectibles. And we need your help!
We need a number of auction items to make this fund-raiser a success. You can do your part by donating artwork you created (or artwork done by others that you own), your creative service, or a unique collectible. If you can help Kathleen, please go to the Help Kathleen Beat Cancer donation page and register your donation.
The auction website is OPEN so you can preview auction items and register to be bidder.
The on-line auction will open for bidding on Thursday, September 23 at 7 p.m. central time. Bidding will remain open until Thursday, September 30 at 7 p.m. Plans are still being made for a closing event, to be either held on-line only, or a hybrid live/on-line celebration.
You can also make direct donations to Kathleen at her GoFundMe page.
Whatever you do to help Kathleen, a leading force in the creative community, please know you have her and C3’s collective heart-felt thanks!
