Naming Rights for Brendan Murphy's Painting


On February 25, Brendan Murphy dedicated his large-scale painting "Let's Take a Walk" to Family House on behalf of Kids & Art. The painting is now installed in the main lobby of Family House, which is due to re-open in a brand new facility at Mission Bay. Family House is a home away from home for families of pediatric cancer patients who live beyond 50 miles from UCSF Hospital.

As part of this donation, Brendan would like to extend his gift of generosity with a naming rights campaign. This means that his gift can do more—as it helps provide support for Kids & Art programs for families in residence and beyond. Brendan is passionate about the mission of Kids & Art, and has expressed to us that his experience leading workshops truly impacted him and changed his outlook and approach to life.

Donor Recognition

Participate by March 31, 2016 to ensure your name will appear on the inaugural plaque. The plaque will be mounted next to the painting as a legacy of your gift and a reflection of the same spirit of generosity that founded Family House.

We know so many of you have supported our art auctions in the past with your time, support and donations. This year, because of Brendan's gift and generosity with the Naming Rights Campaign we will be able to focus our efforts on programs rather than an planning an auction for 2016. Please consider joining these donors by March 31.
