Art with a Heart is a philanthropic event benefiting the Oklahoma Children's Cancer Association, Cavett Kids Foundation, and the K Club sponsored by the Tri Delta alumnae chapter of Oklahoma City, Edmond & Norman.
The artwork for the event is created by children who are undergoing treatment or have been in treatment at the Jimmy Everest Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders.
Art with a Heart is more than just a fundraiser, throughout the year we host art therapy days for the children to escape their day to day routine with local artists to create beautiful pieces of art. The event features these young artists and honors them along with their families. Throughout the night, the children are the center of attention, not because of their illness, but because of their one of a kind masterpieces.
Proceeds this year will go towards OCCA, Camp Cavett, and the K Club.
OCCA is a non-profit group that helps children and their families cope with the emotional, physical and financial struggles associated with cancer.
Cavett Kids Foundation offers camps and year-round programs completely free of charge, for kids with chronic and life-threatening illnesses.
Keaton’s Kindness Foundation, or K Club, was founded by Art With a Heart artist Keaton Barrón. Keaton’s dream was to provide kindness, courage, and compassion to patients while fighting for a cure for pediatric cancer. Keaton passed away on May 11, 2018 but his beautiful legacy lives on through the K Club.

Oklahoma Children’s Cancer Association
The Oklahoma Children's Cancer Association was founded in 1974 by a small group of parents who were experiencing stress, questions and fears associated with having a family member diagnosed with cancer.
These parents saw the need to provide local support for families whose children were diagnosed with cancer, thus Oklahoma Children's Cancer Association was born. OCCA has grown from a small group of caring parents to an organization affiliated with the OU Physicians Jimmy Everest Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders.

Cavett Kids Foundation
Since 1997 Cavett Kids has provided FREE camps, programs and special events for children battling life-threatening illnesses. In everything we do, we strive to develop Character, Coping and Connection while also improving the lives of over 15,000 children each year.
Our services provide a safe place for children to feel like a “normal” kid while also receiving the life-saving medical care they need. Camp Cavett is our largest camp to date serving over 200 children from Oklahoma and surrounding states. But it’s truly more than a camp. It’s a place “where illness does not define the child.”
