Swann Galleries will be lending its space Thursday, October 29, to the humanitarian organization Surgeons OverSeas (SOS), which will be hosting its Fall fundraiser and will feature auction by Swann Galleries' President Nicholas Lowry.
SOS provides support to local surgeons, hospitals and ministries of health to assist them in developing long-term surgical capacity.
Tickets are $100 each and will help SOS continue to save the lives of children and adults in the world's poorest communities who, when faced with illness, have limited access to trained surgeons or medical care. SOS trains local surgeons and healthcare workers, and provides critical medical supplies.
In addition to what promises to be a lively fundrasing auction, the evening will include a presentation by SOS founders Doctors Peter Kingham and Adam Kushner, cocktails, and hors d'oeuvres.
