The annual Art in the City fundraiser for Family Health Center of Worcester is a little different this year. With help from the Skinner Auction House, Family Health Center began an online auction Sept. 22 featuring the original works of 61 New England artists, all to benefit the center’s mission to offer access to quality health care to low-income and uninsured patients. Bids are being accepted until 6 p.m. Sept. 25 at https://www.skinnerinc.com/auctions/1235T.
The public is invited to join a live-streaming event to celebrate Art in the City, hosted by Jen Carter of WXLO, at 7 to 7:45 p.m. Sept. 24 at https://zoom.us/j/95862089152.
“Funds raised through the Art in the City auction will directly support comprehensive health services for 35,000 low-income residents of Worcester and South Worcester County,” said Lou Brady, president and CEO of Family Health Center of Worcester. “Donations will also support our COVID-19 response which has included 6,500 tests, contact tracing, and care management services for over 1,000 patients who have tested positive.”
Proceeds benefit patients at Family Health Center of Worcester, Family Health Center – Southbridge, the Lois B. Green Breast Health Center and Worcester Health Care for the Homeless.
