Craft for a Cure

The American Craft Exposition (ACE), presented by The Auxiliary of NorthShore University HealthSystem (NorthShore) at Evanston & Glenbrook Hospitals does so much more than simply bring together superior artisans exhibiting one-of-a-kind, museum quality work.

ACE is also a fundraiser supporting critical ovarian cancer research at NorthShore. Artists support ACE’s funding goal by participating in the voluntary “Craft for a Cure” program and donating a percentage of a designated sale.
The following list details the artists who will be participating in “Craft for a Cure.” Please visit their booth next weekend!

This year, proceeds from ACE, including percentages from sales from Craft for a Cure, will go to helping to find a cure for ovarian cancer, often called the “silent killer” because symptoms are easy to dismiss and it’s often diagnosed too late for effective treatment. However, research from Gus Rodriguez, MD, and his team have found that using routine use of the combination estrogen-progestin oral contraceptive pill results in a remarkable 30-50 percent reduction in the risk of developing not only ovarian cancer, but also in endometrial cancer.
