The guild and committee members hope that this benefit help, in a small way, to help make a positive impact in the lives of those affected by cancer.
In 2012, The Midwest Lampworkers Guild adopted Beads of Courage as the official beneficiary of the Art in the Bag event. Beads of Courage is an arts-in-medicine program for children with serious illness. Through our annual event, we have been able to bring the Beads of Courage program to Omaha Children's Hospital and Medical Center. Ongoing fundraising has helped to grow and sustain the local program with some funds also supporting the International program.
