Maria's Children in Colorado!

Anyone in the Boulder area...

Come meet Patch Adams, the famous physician who realized that laughter is sometimes the medicine patients need most—and founder of the Gesundheit! Institute, and Maria Yeliseyeva, the founder of Maria's Children, the wonderful organization based in Moscow that for 15 years has been helping orphans and children with special needs through art therapy.

The evening will be an art exhibition and live auction featuring works created by students from Maria's Children Art Center in Moscow. 

Saturday, May 12th at 6 p.m.
Hotel Boulderado Event Center
21115 13th Street
Boulder, CO

Admission is $50, and children under 12 are free. All proceeds go to the Maria's Children Art Center.

Please RSVP by May 8th to Maria Stepanyan: mariastepanyan@gmail.com, 303-588-7094.

Please spread the word! I've been to the Patch Adams/Maria's Children auctions in Moscow for the past six years and the evening is unforgettable. You will be amazed by the masterpieces created by these children, so full of thankfulness and hope and featuring fantastical fairy-tale and Russian motifs.
