KSAS-TV Promotes Art for Arthritis

Topic: Youth-Focused Initiatives

Newport Televisionís Fox affiliate KSAS-TV and MyNetworkTV affiliate KMTW-TV Wichita, Kan., teamed up to promote the second annual Art for Arthritis event on March 10. Fourteen youth arthritis patients each joined a local artist to create artwork including photography, paintings, clay pieces and three-dimensional puzzles for the event. Their work was auctioned off during the Art for Arthritis gathering, with some of the pieces selling for more than $500. In total, the event raised $36,000 for the Arthritis Foundation of Kansas.
