Arts in health care is a growing field. At the core, the arts promote physical and emotional well-being of patients and enhance the overall health care experience. 

Recognizing the healing power of arts in health care, Samaritan continues to advance its ArtsCare Program and activities available to patients, community members and Samaritan employees.

Expansion of these activities is dependent on donations and grant funding. For the first time since the program’s inception, a multifaceted awareness and fundraising event will be held on Saturday, Sept. 23. 

Two great events, one meaningful cause.

Bras for the Cause: 10 a.m. to noon 
Kicking off the day, workshop participants will decorate bras or shirts. Items will be displayed in local businesses throughout Corvallis and Albany during October in support of breast cancer awareness month. Space is limited and registration is required.

Art for the Cause: 6 to 8 p.m.
Following in the evening, participants will enjoy live music, refreshments, local works of art, with the option to purchase pieces directly or to bid on silent auction items. Advance registration is preferred but not required.

Both events will be held at the Samaritan Pastega Regional Cancer Center in Corvallis on Saturday, Sept. 23.

Proceeds will support the ArtsCare Program and future offerings specifically designed with cancer patients in mind.
