Angels Among Us Announces 2019 Artists & Angels Gala on September 20
Angels Among Us (www.MyAngelsAmongUs.org) will host their Artists & Angels Gala on Friday, September 20, beginning at 5:30 p.m. at A View on State. This event year’s event, presented in partnership with the David Spence Cancer Foundation, is themed around art.
Angels Among Us has invited nationally-known artist Jeffrey Owen Hanson (www.jeffhansonart.com) to attend and auction off a piece of his work. Visually impaired since childhood from Neurofibromatosis, Jeff’s acrylic-on-canvas work creates an unmistakable signature style. He first began painting while undergoing chemotherapy at age 12. Despite his limited vision, Jeff continues to create brilliant artwork—a sight for sore eyes, he calls it. In addition to Jeffrey Owen Hanson’s incredible work, the evening will feature over 65 silent and live auction items.
Angels Among Us is a Nebraska nonprofit that provides financial and emotional support to families whose children are battling pediatric cancer.
