Wellness Benefit For Chris Adkins
Arts community beloved friend and colleague, Chris Adkins, has been waging a year-long battle with cancer. Friends are holding a celebratory fundraiser for Chris in order to raise money to support him in whatever ways he wants as he continues to undergo the extensive medical treatments he has ahead of him.
