Thank you Huckleberry Brewing Company

In December, 2019, Huckleberry Brewing Company hosted a week of events called Cenlabration Fest with the proceeds going to Arts & Healthcare, Inc.  They hosted a painting night with Quirky Artz; held a toddler art exhibit, hosted a brew pairing dinner and then Cenlabration on Saturday with a chili cook-off. As a result of these events, we received checks from not only Huckleberry Brewing Company, but also two of their sponsors - Cleco and Spirits Food & Friends.  We are so grateful for their support.

Grateful for New Grants Received

We are happy to announce that we are now officially a part of the Threshold Choir organization.  The voice is the perfect vehicle to convey compassion and comfort at the bedsides of people who are at a threshold, some with living, some with dying.  When invited, we send 2-4 singers who offer soft, simple, restful songs to comfort, support and honor those at the thresholds of life, as well as their families and caregivers.  The Threshold Choir also gives singers the opportuniy to offer their voices in service and to create community in the deepest sense.  

If you would like to join us as a singer or schedule a session for us to sing for a loved one, please contact DC Sills at 18 318-2624 or itsmedc@dcsills.com.

Although our choir is on hold at this time due to COVID-19, we hope to be back soon....so please let us know if you are interested in joining us.

In 2020, Arts & Healthcare, Inc. received  grants from RoyOMartin and from the Rotary Club of Alexandria.  Both of these grants will go toward our music and art program at CHRISTUS St. Frances Cabrini Hospital where we share live music in lobbies, the cafeteria and patient rooms and art in the Cancer Center and patient rooms. 

In the summer of 2020, we received a very generous grant from Union Pacific Foundation to help us make it through this difficult time during the COVID 19 pandemic.  We are so grateful for their continued support of our mission and programs.  

We are most grateful for these dontaions that will help us continue to use the arts to heal.
