     FORT LAUDERDALE, FL  – Children’s Diagnostic & Treatment Center (CDTC) hosts the 16th Annual Ribbons for the Children Art Exhibition & Auction in support of children and families with special healthcare needs on Friday, September 30 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the nonprofit’s headquarters located at 1401 S. Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale.

Guests will enjoy wine and hors d’oeuvres while perusing and bidding on original works created and donated by talented local artists on display throughout CDTC. This year’s art will be on display with bidding done online. There will also be a raffle for incredible gift baskets.

“Ribbons for the Children is always a special evening which raises much-needed funds for children and families who face incredible health obstacles,” said Maria Pierson, event co-chair and CEO of Pierson Grant Public Relations. “Our guests will also tour CDTC where the most vulnerable in our community receive the highest quality medical and dental care.”

Ribbons for the Children has evolved and expanded from a predominately HIV-centric awareness event to include a focus on all the diagnosis CDTC patients face every day.

“We are proud that 100% of proceeds from our art auction directly support CDTC’s programs and services,” said Chuck Williams, event founder and co-chair. “We are incredibly grateful to all the local artists who continue to come back each year and for the new artists who generously donate their time and talent to support our mission at CDTC.”
