Artists' Fundraiser to Help Send Volunteers to Gulf

The UNC School of Nursing is holding an artisan fundraiser on Tuesday, Feb. 7, to raise money to send volunteers from the School of Nursing and the School of Public Health to participate in the Gulf Coast hurricane relief effort during Spring Break.

The event will feature watercolors, rugs, shawls, sculpture and other creative works by juried artists from the Chatham County Studio Tour.

It will run from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the first floor of Carrington Hall.

Volunteers plan to visit the Mississippi Gulf Coast towns of Ocean Springs, Biloxi and Long Beach to provide care for those displaced by Hurricane Katrina.

For more information, contact Dr. Sonda Oppewal in the School of Nursing at (919) 843-6169
