2020 Sponsorship:

The Midwest Lampworkers’ Guild is excited to announce that our 2020 fundraising event is going virtual.   While we will truly miss seeing all of our supporters smiling faces in person, we hope to see them this year online on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/artinthebag.  Please “like” our page and share the page and our posts to help us grow our support.

The main Art in the Bag event will take place November 19th – 23rd and will feature an online auction, videos and other educational information about the Beads of Courage program and the art of glass bead making.

All proceeds from the event will support the Beads of Courage program at Children’s Hospital and Medical Center and Nebraska Medicine in Omaha, Nebraska. 

Beads of Courage is an arts-in-medicine program for children coping with serious illness, their families and the health care providers who care for them.  Children’s Hospital launched the program as a result of our 2012 Art in the Bag fundraising efforts and we continue to support them annually through our event.

In order to make this year’s event a success, we are asking for your consideration for sponsorship.  We have multiple options to choose from and can customize a sponsorship to fit your giving level.  $500, $250, $100, $50 and $25.

Donations can be made directly online by clicking here:  Click here  or via check.    

Please make checks payable to:  Midwest Lampworks Beads for a Cause (or MLB).  Checks can be mailed to:  Michele Michaelsen, Attn:  Art In the Bag, 5525 N 140th St, Omaha, NE 68164

Thank you for your consideration of this request; your contribution to Art in the Bag will help us continue to sustain and grow the Beads of Courage program touching the lives of children and families with serious illness.
