Prism Glassworks Melts Away Cancer
Local Artists benefit the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center
Troy, NY September 7 and 8, 2012 -- Prism Glassworks is proudly joining the fight against ovarian cancer by sponsoring and hosting the Prism Glassworks Melts Away Cancer fundraising event September 7-8. The two day event will feature live glassblowing demos by top artists from the region, local music, Canvas Art and blacksmithing demos. The event will be followed by a silent auction and benefit concert in Albany the evening of the 8th, where all proceeds will benefit the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
The two day event at Prism Glassworks is free to the public and will bring together local artists from a number of mediums who will donate finished pieces. The silent auction hosted by Savannahs the Dublin Underground is a $5 suggested donation. Attendees will have the opportunity to donate to cancer research and take home a one of a kind piece of art.
Ovarian cancer is a subject that is close to my heart and I wanted to put together an event that could help raise money for research and raise awareness for this type of cancer. Phil Sundling of Prism Glass works.
As I always say, YOU yourself may never have to worry about this, but we all have grandmothers, mothers, sisters, daughters, wives, girlfriends...
I never want someone else to think, it could never happen to me. I was told that for year before I was diagnosed with a rare ovarian cancer at 27. You are your advocate and sometimes the only one.
Christina Ruffer (phils Fiance)
