Foundation chairperson Les J. Lieberman spoke appreciatively of the artists, "We are overwhelmed by the incredible support our organization has received from the art community. We are very excited about the unique artwork in the 2014 art auction and are confident it will be our most successful auction yet. Funds raised from this evening will help CCBF ensure that all of our patients receive care regardless of their ability to pay".

Art featured in the auction will include works by artists Guido Argentini, Wayne Gonzales, Peter Halley, Candida Hofer, Zhang Huan, Michele Oka Doner, Richard Pettibone, Richard Serra, Massimo Vitali, Richard Wathen, Lawrence Weiner and more.

"The art auction is a signature event for CCBF," said Jennifer Zaleski, Executive Director of the Children's Cancer & Blood Foundation.  "Through this program, we are able to provide generous assistance for the imperative, life-saving work of our expert physicians and researchers."

Auction tickets are available for $50; however, buyers need not be present to bid.  Pre- and absentee- bids can be placed by clicking http://childrenscbf.org/content/place-bid-artwork.  All artwork has been donated by the artists, so acquisitions will be free of sales tax and buyer's premium, allowing all proceeds to go directly to CCBF.
