Art of Healing

South Central Health Care Foundation will host the 11th Annual Art of Healing on March 23, 2019. The event will feature a silent art auction, a live art auction, great food, and cash bar. Immediately following the live auction,  Dr. Zarr and the Amazing Funk Monster entertained the audience into the night. All proceeds raised at the event support community health initiatives hosted by South Central Health Care Foundation.

The Silent Auction at Art of Healing features Mobile Bidding. This will allow for a paperless bidding system. You will bid using your smartphone or tablet on silent auction items. Also, you can easily track Packages by “following” their activity without having to continuously return to a table or bid sheet.

Art of Healing is an annual art auction that is held each spring as a community fundraiser for the South Central Health Care Foundation. Approximately 400 people have attended our past events, with over $30,000 raised. These funds helped cover the cost of events such as the Community Health Screening Initiative which provided free health screenings throughout the year for hundreds of area residents. Our healthcare providers found several life threatening conditions during the screenings. Additional events funded through the South Central Health Care Foundation include: ExtraOrdinary Kids – Special Needs Support Group, SCRMC Life Conference, Children’s Education Programs, Monthly Lunch and Learn for Health Education, Childbirth Education, Newborn Education, Alzheimer’s Memorial Fund, Be Your Best Self Drug and Alcohol Mobile Classroom, Carri S. Broussard Memorial Fund, ComfortCare Hospice Patients, Community Support Groups and more.
