The combination of art and charity resulted in an amazing fundraising event for a wonderful cause! In a single evening, the Sweet Iris Art Auction of over 175 works of art resulted in more than $100K being contributed directly to GM1 gene therapy research and the UMass Memorial Foundation.
Sweet Iris is a seven year old girl who suffers from Juvenile GM1 Gangliosidosis. This particular event was an incredible outpouring of support. Friends, colleagues, family members and even strangers contributed by volunteering, donating beautiful artwork, and purchasing art.
Please do not hesitate to contact our foundation should you have artwork or auction items to contribute towards future fundraisers.
