ART IN ACTION
Join us for a fun-filled night of paper crafts for the whole family! Doing arts and crafts during hospital stays was always a nice break for Grace when she was in treatment. So we created an art event for both kids and adults that's not only fun filled but whose proceeds go to kids fighting cancer. You can also purchase tickets for children in the hospital to participate!
Our artist friend Ariana from AH & Co. will guide us through making Custom Initials Wall Art where you can spell out your whole name or make a monogram using your initials. Gather your old magazines and wrapping paper for a fun time together. We'll use paper, scissors, glue, crayons, markers, and colored pencils, but feel free to use old buttons, glitter, rhinestones, thin fabric and more! We'll send you more details and an outline to print for the night of the event. Learn more or register through the link below! We can't wait to get creative with you as we help our warriors!

Let's invest in her being able to do that!

CARDS FOR A CAUSE
We're all about sharing the love here at WITH Grace, and what better way to do that than with a card?

Cards are available now!

Grace's favorite thing to do during treatment, even on icky days, was to always find a moment to rally by dancing to a good playlist. We ask others to join us in this celebration for the warriors still fighting through our annual Dance-A-Thon. Have fun. Dance. Raise money for a good cause.
December 2021 - Date TBD
We'll post more information as the date gets closer. But for now, email us for more information. We can't wait to party with you!
