De Paul Treatment Centers – Beneficiary of the 2013 Femme Fète Auction

miller-nash-femme-fete-01This year we were honored to feature our clients’ artwork and to be a beneficiary of the 2013 Femme Fète Auction hosted by Miller Nash. Femme Fète brings together female professionals from across the Northwest to engage in supporting the community, browsing and buying art, and creating connections with each other.

De Paul was chosen as this year’s beneficiary for the auction of art which was created by clients from our residential and outpatient treatment programs. The clients were assisted in their artwork by the staff and resources of Mimosa Studios in NE Portland. Each piece told a personal story that exposed the struggles and suffering that typify addiction as well as the joy and freedom that recovery brings.

The Femme Fête auction provided the chance to showcase the healing nature of art and the stories that can be told through artistic outlets. We offer a heartfelt thanks to Miller Nash for selecting us to participate in this event.
