Pulled straight off their website:
Kaleidoscope, presented nationally by Carolinas HealthCare System’s Levine Cancer Institute, is a celebration. Kaleidoscope is a nationally televised special that brings together a star-studded cast of award-winning musicians and champion athletes in an artistic salute to cancer survivors nationwide. In addition, Kaleidoscope connects patients and caregivers to information and resources to help them thrive and feel empowered.

Purchasing original art is an intimidating prospect for many. Where do you go to buy it? What’s a fair price? Will it look good in my home? Where is the best place to hang it? How do I hang it? I have a great little anecdote that answers all of those questions in the context of JWV Artists. May I share with you… ‘THE STORY OF ERIN’…a JWV Artists success story.
I invited Erin to the JWV Artists Fall Show. She told me that she probably wouldn’t be able to make it, so I was surprised when she showed up bright an early the first morning. She brought her camera filled with pictures of her lovely home and existing art collection, as well as potential art spaces. After walking through my home gallery for an hour, she pulled me aside and told me that she liked three pieces in particular, but she didn’t know where they might work in her home. We looked through her catalogue of pictures and I was able to help her envision repositioning her existing art and capitalizing on the WOW factor of the fabulous pieces she had selected. We loaded the art into her car and she took the pieces home on loan with the understanding that I would meet her at her house after the show that day to help her with this process.
Levine Cardiac Kids is excited to hold our 2nd Annual Silent Auction & Dinner, “Open Your Heart”. This year’s theme is “Boots & BBQ” on this Saturday, November 10 at 6:30 pm at Carolina Golf Club. Ticket prices are $40 per person and can be purchased by emailing Meghan Shelton at firstname.lastname@example.org. We welcome anyone interested in supporting Levine Cardiac Kids to attend this amazing event!
Last year we successfully raised over $23,000 and this year we again have wonderful donated items from many local establishments. This is LCK’s largest fundraising effort and the money raised at this event will benefit LCK and our members in many ways, such as paying for Camp LuCK in the spring, providing care bags to all children and families in the hospital and providing social/support events for our families.

Smarties, we’re super excited to bring you the Scoop on the most anticipated Grand Opening to hit Ballantyne Village, The Cheeky Bean boutique. This is not just another swanky fashion boutique. As soon as you step foot in the store, you will notice a difference. You will feel like you’re hanging with your favorite gal pals, but you’ll spend a fraction of the price as traditional boutiques.
Owner and Smarty Mama, Justine Hundley, greets you with her infectious smile and treats you just like her own family. The best part about her store – you won’t find anything in the store for over $100. We Smarties bow down to Justine for that pledge! But don’t be fooled, the quality is not compromised one single bit, nor is the fashion statement you’ll make. The Cheeky Bean is an online women’s contemporary clothing boutique focused on bringing you the very best in all things fashionable, fabulous and affordable. What I loved most about this store is all of the stripes, color and patterns – everything in there made me feel beautiful!

It’s that time of year again and Halloween is less than a week away, along with that never-ending bag of candy that finds its way into your home after a night of trick-or-treating. There are a few things that I typically tell my patients and their families in order to help minimize cavities:
• Separate out all of your chocolate/milk chocolate candy from everything else. This is the best selection to let kids have as it has milk (calcium) in it and melts quickly with no gooey residue on the teeth.
