FFAC Invitational Reverse Auction

Artist: Linda Teddlie Minton
28"h x 26"w

Fiberart For A Cause will hold its fifth Invitational Reverse Auction from March 24-26, 2009. A preview of the artwork opens today:

The contributing artists are Natalya Aikens, Gerrie Congdon, Marjorie DeQuincy, Rayna Gillman, Carol Larson, Linda Teddlie Minton, Susie Monday, Judy Coates Perez, Leandra Spangler and Roxane Stoner.

All artwork will begin at a fixed minimum donation. This minimum donation is reduced by a fixed (and very generous) percentage of the original minimum donation each day until the artwork is chosen by a generous patron. 100% of all donations go directly to the American Cancer Society.

"Having lost my husband to cancer nine years ago, I wanted to make some small contribution to something that is so close to my own heart, as well as a joyful way to remember my husband and other friends and relatives who have fought this disease. Since fiber art is both my vocation and my avocation, this seemed a perfect match for me. I was honored to be asked to contribute to the Invitational Reverse Auction, and delighted to accept," said Linda Teddlie Minton.

Fiberart For A Cause has now donated more than $165,000 to the American Cancer Society in the last four years and was the second highest national fundraiser for the 2007 American Cancer Society Cancer's Relay for Life.

Karen, thanks so much for your post about the Reverse Auction, and for featuring my artwork! Your tireless support of FFAC is so inspirational, to me and many others. It was great fun to see you at "the Franch", too ... just wish we had had a chance to visit more!
