Art to Heart: Supporting the Children's Heart Foundation
Congenital heart defects are the foremost birth defect in the United States, making
research into diagnosing, treating and preventing them of vital importance. In addition,
families with children affected need information and emotional support as they learn
to deal with this difficult reality and its ramifications. Agora Gallery is proud
to support the Children’s Heart Foundation, which contributes to both of these crucial
areas. As part of our commitment to helping art make the world a better place, Agora
Gallery donates 15% of its proceeds from the sale of artwork from the art competition
exhibition to the CHF.
