Children’s Diagnostic & Treatment Center (CDTC) is accepting artwork donations for the Ribbons for the Children Art Exhibit & Auction. In it’s 15th year, the annual event has been re-branded to reflect & celebrate awareness of the many health issues and illnesses children with special healthcare needs at CDTC live with every day.

Their diagnoses are as diverse as our community. This new look and format will benefit all children who receive medical, dental, and care coordination services in our many programs – including our Pediatric Primary Care Center, Pediatric Dental Clinic, Medical Home Programs, and Comprehensive Family AIDS Program.

We invite artists to produce an original visual art piece in their own artistic style and medium for this heartwarming event. Art will be selected at the discretion of our event jury.

Selected pieces may be featured in some or all of the following:

• A Ribbons for the Children window front / promotional signage in the Galleria at Fort Lauderdale in September. Dates TBD
• At our Ribbons Exhibition & Auction on September 23rd
• In this year’s note cards and calendar for sale at the event and online
• In our online auction benefiting CDTC. Artists will receive links to share the auction and merchandise with their friends, followers and collectors.
