Robert's Snow for Cancer Research

If you live in Boston, you might want to attend the 2005 kickoff of Robert's Snow. Robert's Snow was founded by my friend Alice's sister, Grace, and Grace's husband Robert, a two-time cancer survivor. Their campaign seeks to raise money for cancer research through the auctioning off of wooden snowflakes decorated by children's book illustrators. Last year, artists such as Marc Brown (creator of Arthur), Ian Falconer (Olivia) and Chris Van Allsburg (The Polar Express) contributed snowflakes to the campaign. (Grace herself is a children's book author and illustrator.)

For more information about the campaign, please visit The 2005 campaign kickoff will take place next Thursday, Nov. 3, from 7 to 9 p.m. at Locco Ritoro Gallery in Boston. The 200 snowflakes that will be auctioned off this year will be on display at the gallery. You can RSVP for the event on the Robert's Snow Web site.

If you can't attend the kickoff, you can still view this year's snowflakes on the Robert's Snow Web site. And, of course, you can bid on a snowflake or snowflakes. They will be auctioned off on eBay beginning Sunday, Nov. 6 (link TK on Robert's Snow).
