You help make it happen!
Works of Heart is a success because of the generous support of our guests, our committed volunteers, and our gracious supporters--not to mention the artists whose time and creativity result in work that ranges from beautiful to thought-provoking. Our committee, under the leadership of Murray Riss and Sheryl Bowen, contribute the details that make the event unique. Works of Heart is just another example of ways people like you pull together to give back and help victims become children again.
