Auction to raise funds for University Hospital’s Center for Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders May 7

The “Little Gifts for Life Auction and Celebration” will be held Friday, May 7, in the Grand Ballroom of the Hotel Syracuse Radisson Plaza. Proceeds will benefit the Center for Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders at University Hospital of the State University of New York Health Science Center at Syracuse.

A silent auction will begin at 6:30 p.m. Among the items featured in the live auction, which starts at 8:30 p.m., are a Daewoo automobile, Stickley furniture and Oriental rugs. Throughout the evening there will be a musical entertainment, light dinner fare and a cash bar. Tickets are $100 (patron level) and $50 (donor level).

Now in its third year, the auction is organized by the families and friends of pediatric patients, and physicians and nurses from the Center for Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders. Funds raised from the event will be placed in the Central New York Children’s Health Fund to be used for equipment, research, and patient and family programs.

University Hospital is the only hospital in Central New York to offer comprehensive pediatric services for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer and blood disorders including leukemia, sickle cell anemia, hemophilia and solid tumors.
