The organization Twist Out Cancer is thrilled to bring its signature program, Brushes With Cancer, to Detroit. This unique celebration of survivorship and hope pairs previvors, survivors, and caregivers with accomplished artists working in a variety of mediums. Those touched by cancer share their stories, feelings, and experiences with an artist, which serves as the inspiration for the art.
The keynote speaker for this year’s gala is Dr. Eddie Connor, who is a best-selling author, international speaker, college professor, actor, and a radio and television correspondent. He is also a survivor of stage 4 cancer and empowers people to overcome obstacles.
General admission tickets include access to the art exhibition and auction, dinner, drinks, and live entertainment. Food and drinks will be provided throughout the evening by the Detroit Shipping Company and Hip Hop Bake Shop. Guests will also be treated to the music of Jesse Palter, Nicole New, and DJ Lynda Carter. The artwork will be auctioned the night of the event and will remain on display in the gallery at Detroit Shipping Company throughout the month of August. Supporters such as Shinola, the Lipstick Journey, Equinox Fitness and more have generously donated items for a raffle.
