Today I thought we will support the cardiovascular research together with Patti Smith & Mikael Sandström.
An Auction is held to benefit the cardiovascular research.
Now is your chance to bid on a signed portrait of Patti Smith that is sold at Bukowskis. The income from the auction goes to research.
Photographer Mikael Sandström underwent major heart surgery a few years ago. After that, he wanted to give back to the research and supports regularly Heart-Lung Foundation by selling portraits in favor of the important cardiovascular research.
During the period November 21 to December 12, you can bid on a signed portrait of the artist Patti Smith. A Christmas gift for you or someone you know?
Here you can find the auction.
Sold favor of Heart-Lung Foundation.
