A Festive Evening of
Unique Art, Food, & Fun
Thank you all that gave their time and talent to create the beautiful masks. Thank you all who attended and contributed to FACES UnMasked!
FACES is able to help create Miracles because of YOU!
Many children with craniofacial anomalies live with fear and uncertainty. Oftentimes they feel as though they live behind a mask. That’s why we’ve created FACES UnMasked, a unique event and auction. Special masks will be decorated by local and national artists, celebrities, sports figures and personalities who are donating their time and talent to make it easier for FACES patients and families to get the help they deserve. Proceeds from the mask auction will directly help fund travel, meal and expenses for FACES patients.
WHAT DOES FACES DO?
FACES was started in September 1969 as The Debbie Fox Foundation, in honor of the first child FACES assisted. Currently, FACES assists 75 to 135 families each year with travel away from home to specialized craniofacial medical centers for life-changing surgeries. In many cases, this is a lifelong journey for these families, as a child born with a severe craniofacial disorder often requires surgeries until young adulthood before their face and skull is completely rebuilt.
In addition to travel expenses and financial and moral support for surgery, FACES has helped over 25,000 individuals across the country with: support networks, information packets on 37 different craniofacial disorders, educational programs in the community, providing literature to every labor and delivery department in US hospitals and numerous resources through www.faces-cranio.org.
