ABOUT: Courage Unmasked, a fundraising effort on behalf of head and neck cancer (HNC). Organized by the Help for Head and Neck Cancer Fund, or 9114HNC. Courage Unmasked taps into the transformative power of art to turn symbols of illness into beacons of hope for the over 40,000 Americans diagnosed with oral or pharyngeal cancer this year. Using the plastic mesh medical masks that protect patients undergoing radiation treatment, artists create unique and inspiring works of art that will be on display for three weeks at the Rehoboth Art League beginning August 28, culminating in a gala fundraising auction on September 19.
This year’s Courage Unmasked auction benefits patients undergoing treatment for head and neck cancers at Beebe’s Tunnell Cancer Center, located near Rehoboth Beach in Lewes, Delaware. All of the proceeds from the auction will go directly to individuals who are struggling to make ends meet as a result of this devastating cancer.
Sponsors for CURB include Beebe Medical Foundation, Rehoboth Art League, Village
Improvement Association and 9114HNC.ORG
Tickets for the Courage Unmasked Gala on Saturday, September 19 are available for purchase by visiting www.9114hnc.org or calling 202-248-7159.
