This Monday evening, September 15, 2008 at Phillips de Pury & Company in New York City, some of the most prominent members of the contemporary art community will participate in an art auction at Phillips de Pury & Company in New York City to support the work of the Children’s Cancer & Blood Foundation (CCBF).

The CCBF funds clinical care and cutting-edge research for children with cancer and serious blood diseases. Founded in 1952, Children’s Cancer and Blood Foundation (CCBF) is the first and largest charitable organization dedicated to supporting the care of children with cancer and blood diseases.

They do this by raising funds for the world renowned Division of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology at the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital Weill Cornell Medical Center.  

The Children’s Cancer and Blood Foundation, through its support of the Division of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology, has created a standard of excellence in the treatment of children with chronic, life-threatening blood disorders since 1952. Children and their families receive the most advanced, comprehensive care provided by a team of pediatric specialists in an atmosphere of compassion, hope and wellness. To learn more about the staff, visit the Doctors and Information section of their website. 

Since their founding, CCBF funding has helped revolutionize the treatment of children suffering from cancers and childhood blood disorders.

For more information about the art event at Phillips de Pury & Company, you can read more about it or purchase tickets.

In addition to the auction at Phillips de Pury & Company, there was an online auction in coordination with ARTNET.COM. Most of the works will have no reserve, and there will be no tax and no buyer’s commission associated with auctioned artworks.
