ABOUT GRANVILLE HOME OF HOPE
The Granville Home of Hope fundraiser began in 2006; since then, the foundation has helped countless Valley families by raising money to provide food, shelter, healthcare and education. Granville Homes, along with the help of its trade partners, donate a beautiful brand new home each year (complete with many luxurious amenities) as a grand prize awarded to one lucky winner. Participants can also win many other exciting prizes, including a 24-month lease on a new car (2019 Lexus UX), presented by Fresno Lexus. Granville Home of Hope has raised over $5.2 million for non-profits since its inception in 2006.
“This home is a symbol of what each of these organizations do each and every day by giving hope to those in need in our community. Please join all of us at Granville Homes by purchasing your ticket today.”
THE ART OF LIFE CANCER FOUNDATION
One of 9 local beneficiaries. All proceeds of tickets purchased directly through the Art of Life benefit the Art of Life Cancer Foundation.
“The Art of Life mission is to ‘inspire people impacted by cancer to connect and heal through creative expression.’ Recognizing that 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women have a lifetime probability of being diagnosed with cancer, the impact of cancer can be felt within one’s own home, school, and workplace. The Art of Life Cancer Foundation was founded as an independent, 501(c)3 non-profit in 2014 because cancer demands more than just physical treatment, it requires personal, lifelong support that focuses on the emotional and spiritual needs of the heart, mind and soul.
The Art of Life Cancer Foundation empowers individuals and families to discover the art of living through healing arts opportunities and workshops that celebrate life and inspire hope. Most notable is the “Paint it Forward” Project, which unites cancer survivors with Artists to co-create works of art that communicate a collective message of hope that has the power to transform our community. Their works of art are featured in Medical Centers throughout the Valley and showcased within the Art of Life Healing Garden, a 3-acre community project inside the Friant and Fort Washington entrance of Woodward Park. The Art of Life Healing Garden is an innovative collaboration between the Art of Life Cancer Foundation, City of Fresno, medical and art community, local philanthropists and a large band of eager volunteers. It has become a Fresno landmark, inspiring hundreds of thousands of people each year and provides: areas of reflection, a lavender labyrinth, children’s playscapes, amphitheater, as well as dedicated trees and benches. The Art of Life Healing Garden reinforces what cancer has taught us: be still, celebrate life, love openly, always remember, and fight on.” – Jenelle Higton, Program Director
