FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Children’s Diagnostic & Treatment Center (CDTC) will host the 14th Annual Ribbons for the Children, an art exhibit and silent art auction on Friday, December 6 from 6 to 9 p.m. at Nova Southeastern University (NSU) Huizenga College of Business in the Dr. William S. Spears Courtyard Atrium.

“Ribbons for the Children is so important because the funds raised provide critical support to the children and families infected and affected by HIV/AIDS,” said Maria Pierson, event co-chair and CEO of Pierson Grant Public Relations. “The stories of the critical work that is done at CDTC and the impact it has on families is such an inspiration. We invite the community to join us in our efforts to support CDTC.”

Guests also will enjoy a champagne wall, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres while bidding on the artwork donated by more than 60 talented local artists. More than 200 guests are expected to attend.

“The arts community has been incredibly supportive of Ribbons for the Children,” said Chuck Williams, event founder and co-chair. “We are so grateful to all the local artists who continue to come back each year and for the new artists who donate their time and talent to such a tremendous cause.”

Tickets are $75 if purchased before November 1 and are $100 if purchased after November 1. NSU faculty and staff tickets are $25. For information visit  http://childrensdiagnostic.org/ribbons-for-the-children/
