Mark your calendars for Tundraland's 2nd Annual Windows for a Cause Art Auction Event!
We've crafted an innovative way to turn old windows into art pieces that are later auctioned off to make a positive impact in the life a deserving individual. Windows for a Cause is made possible by the kind efforts of local artists, community figures, organizations and all others who take the time to re-purpose a window.
In 2016, the Northeast Wisconsin community rallied together to raise $15,000 at our 1st Annual Windows for a Cause event. The $15,000 was used to purchase a new wheelchair for John Green, a veteran suffering from Multiple Sclerosis for over 40 years.
Windows for a Cause 2017 will be held on Tuesday, April 25th and the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center in Appleton, Wisconsin. All proceeds from Windows for a Cause 2017 will be used to send 4 year old Delilah Presley along with her family on an all expense paid vacation to Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Delilah was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation in November of 2015 at the age of two. Chiari Malformation is a condition cause by a structural defect in the cerebellum, the part of the brain that controls balance.
A Chiari malformation occurs when the lower portion of the brain pushes into the spinal canal. The resulting pressure on the cerebellum and brain stem may affect functions controlled by these areas and block the flow of spinal fluid to and from the brain. Delilah has been diagnosed with additional conditions due to a result from her advanced form of Chiari. Because of her advanced case Delilah is at risk for paralysis and other damage to her basic bodily functions such as breathing, regulatory heart rate,swallowing, blood pressure regulation. In July of 2016 Delilah underwent skull, spine and brain surgery to create more room for her brain, in hopes of restoring normal spinal fluid flow but the surgery was unsuccessful.
Delilah awaits a second brain surgery to be scheduled for 2017.
