Art Auction

 

More than 30 unique paintings are available to the highest bidders in a unique art auction benefiting the Foundation for Prader-Willi Research (FPWR).

Each piece of art, beautifully painted on a 12×16 canvas, was created specifically for this art show by individuals with Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) to help raise the funds needed to find treatments for PWS.

Individuals with PWS struggle with a multitude of challenges that limit their independence. Currently, there are no effective treatments for PWS but FPWR is working to change that! 100% of proceeds from the PWS Artists Art Auction will support much-needed PWS Research.

Each piece of art has been set up for auction on Handbid. Bids can be made until Wednesday, July 21, at 1 p.m. PST. You can support our efforts by visiting our auction and placing a bid on your favorite art!

Is your gallery wall full? A generous donor has offered to match your tax-deductible donation, up to $5,000! Visit our auction today to bid or donate!

Susan Hedstrom is the Executive Director for the Foundation for Prader-Willi Research. Passionate about finding treatments for PWS, Susan joined FPWR in 2009 shortly after her son, Jayden, was diagnosed with Prader-Willi Syndrome. Rather than accepting PWS as it has been defined, Susan has chosen to work with a team of pro-active and tireless individuals to accelerate PWS research in order to change the future of PWS. Inspired by her first FPWR conference and the team of researchers that were working to find answers for the syndrome, she joined the FPWR team in 2010 and led the development of the One SMALL Step walk program. Under Susan’s leadership, over $15 million has been raised for PWS related research.
