LCF and UCSF Thoracic Oncology Lung Cancer Program were named beneficiaries of the proceeds from the sale of property from “The Vertical Art Collection™: Walking Sticks” held at Christie’s in their Important Russian Art sale in London on Nov 25 and in their 500 Years Decorative Arts Europe sale in New York on Nov 30. The owner of this impressive collection, who chooses to remain anonymous, has taken a leading role over the years in supporting the Foundation’s vision to make Lung Cancer a survivable disease. With this auction, some unusual and beautiful art is helping to support the Foundation! LCF also receives an ongoing grant from the proceeds of the sale of an associated art book, Vertical Art: The Enduring Beauty of Antique Canes and Walking Sticks.
“It brings me so much hope when the generosity of our incredible supporters focuses a worldwide spotlight on the fight against Lung Cancer.” – Scott Santarella, President & CEO, LCF
