Saskatchewan Residents win valuable works of art in the Lung Association's ARTWORKS FOR LUNG HEALTH
Saskatoon , April 25, 2006 “The Lung Association is always looking for ways to express ˜thanks and appreciation' to the many donors that support lung health initiatives in Saskatchewan.Â Seven years ago we developed the ArtWorks For Lung Health Campaign to say a heartfelt thanks to our many patrons.Â We invite our donors to enter a draw to win one of four beautiful pieces of art.Â No donation or payment of any kind is necessary to participate. This year we were privileged to have artists Yvonne Kydd, Val Moker, Glen Scrimshaw, and Robert Bateman donate spectacular, limited edition prints to the campaign.
The ArtWorks for Lung Health draw took place at our Saskatoon regional office on April 24 and here are our big winners!Â Saskatoon residents Ken Theis and F. James Steel won limited edition prints, ˜Guiding Lights' by Glen Scrimshaw and ˜When Wheat Was King “ Indian Head in 1902' by Yvonne Kydd, Leoville resident, Adeline D. Warkentin won Val Moker's ˜Chateau Poppies' and D. Ronald Bell of Humboldt won ˜Winter Barnyard' by Robert Bateman.
Lung disease touches the lives of many of our residents. In Saskatchewan, one in every three people will be affected by lung disease during their lifetime. In fact, when asked why they support the Lung Association, two of our ArtWorks winners, Ken Theis and Adeline D. Warkentin stated that family members and close friends have been affected by lung disease.
You will find The Lung Association, the premier source for respiratory health initiatives in the province, active in your community conducting programs on asthma, COPD (that includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis), sleep apnea and the reduction of tobacco use, providing training for health professionals, delivering health education in schools, facilitating patient support groups, and lobbying for clean air.
