VERO BEACH – February 1, 2010 — The American Cancer Society is proud to acknowledge the contributions of clay Artisan Heidi Hill. Her originally designed and hand sculpted western style boots are currently being artistically transformed by a group of artists selected from a Call To Artists to help Give Cancer the Boot! These unique western style boots, which are approximately 12″ high and 8.5″ heel-to-toe, will be auctioned off at the 2010 “Stetsons & Stilettos” themed Citrus Gala and Cattle Barons’ Ball on Saturday, March 6, 2010 at the Paris Air hangar. Heidi Hill has resided in Vero Beach since 1991, with her husband Geoff and two sons Brett and Max. A life-long interest in art began in her early childhood years. She lived for ten years with her parents and siblings in Europe and the exposure to magnificent art and architecture kindled her creative spirit.
Heidi enjoys and welcomes new challenges and her generous spirit has been evident in the works of art she has created for fundraisers including the Samaritan Center Soup Bowl, the Mental Health Association’s Turtle Trax and others.
Cancer is no stranger to Heidi. Her sister was diagnosed with thyroid cancer at 23 years of age, and an aunt and a close friend have also battled with cancer. As a result, she is well aware of the toll this devastating disease takes on family members and cancer victims and is glad to help the American Cancer Society in its efforts to Give Cancer the Boot!
