Artwork created by children with serious illnesses will be auctioned off, along with works by professional artists and celebrities, at Chai Lifeline’s “Through the Eyes of our Children” on May 21.

Chai Lifeline West Coast provides support to 325 seriously ill children and their families, and most of the 40 works being exhibited were created in art therapy programs. In addition to the children’s work, celebrities such as Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jamie Lee Curtis and David Beckham have created works specifically for this event, and more than 20 internationally and nationally acclaimed artists, including Kim Abeles, Lita Albuquerque, Doni Silver Simons and Ruth Weisberg, have donated works to benefit Chai Lifeline West Coast.

Entry to the exhibit is free. To RSVP, contact westcoast@chailifeline.org, call (310) 274-6331, or go to chailifeline.org/westcoast.
