ArtBLINK Gala 2021

This is a past event.

The O’Neal Comprehensive Cancer Center at UAB will host its 36th annual ArtBLINK Gala. For the first time in the event's history, the gala will be entirely virtual. 

This year, the event program will be available to watch for free on the O’Neal Cancer Center’s YouTube channel and will feature an online art auction of original pieces from 20 local artists in order to support top-priority projects in cancer research and care through the O'Neal Cancer Center’s Fund for Excellence. Don't miss out: Watch the event premiere on YouTube starting at 6:30 p.m. CST on Friday, Feb. 5. You can also subscribe to the Cancer Center’s YouTube channel and click the bell to receive a notification when the event premiere begins.

Every ticket buyer, corporate sponsor and Director’s Circle member will also be given the option to reserve a special ArtBLINK dinner from Iz Catering to enjoy at home. Dinners will be individually packaged for easy pickup before the event and will be insulated in a free O'Neal Cancer Center-branded bag. Note that tickets are not required to watch the video program or to bid in the auction.
