It’s a night of wine and spirits, snacks and mingling, all while discovering local artists from in and around the Cochrane and Calgary area.  This event is in support of families who are struggling to make ends meet as their child battles cancer, hosted by volunteers from Helping Families Handle Cancer.  Consider owning a unique masterpiece, creations from every genre of art, while making a critical difference in the lives of families in our community.

Artwork will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis. There will also be a silent auction and a chance to bid on a “live” painting by Sharon Kulhavy, owner of Final Touch Art Studio, whose painting will unfold from start to finish, during the event.
This year we kick off our first Art Exhibit in Cochrane and we’re excited to bring this event to the town where our Executive Director, Carie Stock grew up and calls home. Final Touch Art Studio holds a special place in our hearts as this is where Carie and her Mom, Robyn, have been painting as hobby for the past 15 years.


To date our Art Exhibit in Calgary has had a total of 7 years of events raising a total of $166, 241 for our Care Program. In 2016 Art Exhibit Lethbridge joined forces raising $30,484 for cancer families having to travel from Lethbridge to the Alberta Children’s Hospital for extended stays in Calgary. Helping Families has had over a dozen families that have come from Cochrane since our inception, our goal is to raise money so when Cochrane families are in need of it most, we have it available.


We know that the Cochrane community will welcome an event like this, that brings people together in the spirit of meeting new people, discovering art and supporting a great cause.


Grab your tickets, because when the event is sold out, that’s all folks!
