An example of the art each participant may be creating!

I’m so thrilled to announce this fundraiser for the Addario Lung Cancer Foundation’s ROS1 Research ProjectAccomplished artist and art instructor Tehila Eisenstat will be teaching an art class! Attendees will paint a picture, using acrylic paints, on a stretched canvas. Absolutely no experience is necessary; in fact, Tehila loves working with all levels, even very beginners. You will be amazed at what you can produce with her guidance in just a few hours.

Tehila is a dedicated supporter of cancer research and cancer care in her community. Before retiring to Carmel, CA this summer, she taught classes regularly for cancer patients at both El Camino Hospital in Mountain View and Palo Alto Medical Foundation in Sunnyvale. It was in this capacity that she taught me for over a year.  Her classes emphasized using colors and subjects that uplift spirits and reduce stress (and who can’t use a little of that?!).

We will spend 3 hours together painting, chatting, having fun, and supporting a very worthwhile cause. Please come join us!

Here are the details:

Time — Wednesday, August 31, 2016, 4pm-7pm

Place — El Camino Hospital, 2500 Grant Rd, Mountain View, CA 94040

Cost — Requested donation minimum of $50. 100% of proceeds will go to the ALCF ROS1 Research Fund. You may bring cash or a check made out to ALCF or Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation (note in the “memo” section that this donation is specifically for the “ROS1 Fund”). Or, if you’d prefer to do it by credit card, please donate here, and bring a print out of the screen or email evidencing your donation. (Receipts can be provided for tax purposes.)  *BONUS* – an anonymous donor will match 100% of every donation made for this event, dollar for dollar, and they invite you to “stick it to them” and really donate a lot, challenging us to meet their maximum of $2,500 (so we’d raise a total of $5,000!). Note: if you cannot attend this event, you can still send in a donation if you wish. 

All necessary supplies will be provided, but if you have favorite brushes or paints or other tools, please feel free to bring them along.

Tehila’s classes generally aren’t too messy, but paint does occasionally get where it should not. Please bring an apron if you wish to protect your clothing.

Light refreshments will be provided.
