About The Valerie Fund

The Benefit of Art When Treating Children with Cancer and Blood Disorders

Art will shine for critically ill children from our area on Friday, February 2, 2018. ArtShines 2018 is a gallery event sponsored by Radius Digital Science at their office on 491 Bloomfield Avenue, Suite 104, in Montclair, New Jersey. All proceeds will directly benefit the families supported by The Valerie Fund and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
The Valerie Fund often utilizes art therapy to cope with the stress and provide relief from symptoms while being treated for childhood cancer and blood disorders. The simple pleasures of creating art allows patients to express themselves and can be used as a non-threatening way to talk about their illnesses.
Opening their doors to the public for the first time, Radius' unique gallery will be featuring artwork from regional and world renowned artists. A very special piece, created by the patients at St. Joseph's Children's hospital together with the Radius team, will be auctioned that evening.
The event will include an open bar, full service of hors d'oeuvres, and a live musical performance provided by JazzHouse Kids. To become a sponsor visit or Tickets for the event can be purchased in advance for $35. As space is limited, it's recommended to make reservations early.
