The show is about breathtaking art and a celebration of community. “From Women’s Hands” continues because of this community’s deep commitment to the three main goals of From Women’s Hands.
- To raise awareness of the Women’s Cancer Fund
- To increase public awareness about the arts and women artists in this region and offer a rare
- opportunity for women artists to show and sell their work
- To raise money for the Women’s Cancer Fund
Artists donate 20 percent of their sales to the Women’s Cancer Fund as well as a raffle piece, from which all of the proceeds go directly to the fund. This ‘must attend’ event of the year is designed to be a joyful celebration of life and of our community:
Brilliant art – incredible music – delicious food – so much joy!
Sustaining contributor Bonnie Alfonso, owner Alfie Logo Gear, when asked why she supports the FWH’s show, very succinctly says, “Art Heals”.
The first FWH’s Show was held in 2003 at the old Carnegie Library building on Sixth Street, now the home of the History Center of Traverse City. The show moved to the Hagerty Center on Northwestern Michigan College’s campus for several years, and then to Streeters for additional space and flexibility. The show is the brainchild of Rosalyn Tyge and chaired by Roz and Jennifer Hutchinson, artists and cancer fund supporters. It continues to exist only because of an intense amount of giving from sponsors, volunteers, artists and the community. Hundreds of beautiful, committed giving souls contribute their time and their hearts each year to make this show happen.

What is the Women’s Cancer Fund?
Nationally, cancer is the leading cause of death for women ages 35-54. The Women’s Cancer Fund was created in the early 1990s by the Munson Healthcare Regional Foundation to help women in northern Michigan who have been diagnosed with cancer. Every dollar received in the fund is used to provide financial assistance when other means have been exhausted. This includes prosthetics, transportation and child care during treatment, home medications and more.

Patient Educator, Munson Medical Center at 935-6921 with your questions.
