About Art Inspiring Hope 

Every year, Okizu holds a fundraiser entitled, “Art Inspiring Hope: A Child’s Struggle with Cancer.” AIH began on a very small scale twenty-four years ago in 1995 and has grown into an extravagant gala drawing more than 500 guests. This event raises more than $850,000 in one evening which helps make it possible for more than 800 children to attend the Okizu programs each year. Okizu offers programming for children with cancer and their families at no charge. The annual black-tie evening with a different, elaborate theme each year, features gourmet food, specialty drinks, silent and live auctions, and headline entertainment. Past performers have included Huey Lewis & The News, Sheryl Crow, The Robert Cray Band, The Doobie Brothers, The Dave Mason Band, and Smash Mouth.
