Relay for Life plans art fundraiser

CHAMPAIGN — The event chairwoman of the 2013 Relay For Life of Champaign County is seeking 100 artists to donate to a fundraiser in connection with the race, which raises money for cancer research.

Jill Rannebarger hopes 100 artists will donate a piece that would sell for $100. But she realizes some works wouldn't be priced at that amount and would accept works of any value given to them by their makers.

"Artists For A Cure: 100 Artists @ $100" will take place April 19-21 at the Indi Go Artist Co-Op, 9 E. University Ave., C. Artists who donate would drop off their pieces at Indi Go on April 18 or may make arrangements with Rannebarger for another drop-off time.

Rannebarger also needs musicians to perform the evenings of April 19 and 20 and the afternoon of April 21 at Indi Go. Contact her at or 979-1504.

All proceeds will go to American Cancer Society.

The Relay For Life of Champaign County event will take place June 8-9. Proceeds from it also go to the American Cancer Society.
