In-person Gala & Live Streaming Event:
September 30, 2023  •  6:00-8:00pm

Hirsch Wellness Network’s 2023 ART LIVES HERE silent auction will be our 15th annual event with a bold new goal of raising $90,000.

And we’re back in person for the Art Lives Here Gala Celebration!
Our two-week art exhibition and fundraiser will culminate in a gathering on Saturday, September 30 when silent bidding concludes and we celebrate everyone involved with the Hirsch Wellness Network organization. Musical entertainment, food, and beverages provided.

All proceeds help maintain our Healing Arts programming and classes at NO COST to cancer patients in treatment, survivors, caregivers, and medical staff. Each month more than 300 class participants attend over 35 self-expressive arts and wellness experiences.  

Hirsch needs your support to expand our program capacity and to resume group activities at the Hirsch Center. Online programming will continue so we can meet the needs of individuals who cannot attend classes in-person due to treatment side effects or mobility constraints.

• Registration for online bidding is free, simply login at our main webpage starting 3pm on September 18.

• Gala admission is ticketed. See link above.

• ONLINE Silent Bidding continues for TWO WEEKS, September 18 through September 30, when bidding closes at 8pm.

• During this two-week event, YOU ARE INVITED to see all donated works of art IN-PERSON exhibited at Revolution Mill’s 1250 Gallery in Greensboro, NC, 3-6pm, September 18 through September 29. The Evening Gala will be held September 30th.
