In 2014, Art & Soup raised $101,077 for the CNS Charitable Care Program,  making it our second most successful event in its 26 year history!  This enables CNS to donate more than 1,010 essential health care services.   A portion of the proceeds, $11,180, was dedicated to the Hospice Memorial Fund, honoring Dr. Nameer Qader.  This fund will provide at least 75 days of charitable hospice care.

Featured artist Jeffery Pugh was joinied by 39 other celebrated and up-and-coming Utah artists. Erin Berrett received the People's Choice Award for Favorite Artist. Selected artists painted "Quick Draws" on the show floor, and these beautiful pieces were auctioned to raise money for the CNS Charitable Care Program. Artists donate 30% of their sales to CNS.

This year, a special Hospice Memorial Fund was established to donate end-of-life care to economically disadvantaged, uninsured Utahns.  At CNS, we believe that everyone deserves the guiding hand of hospice care to navigate the dying process. This year, the Memorial Hospice Fund honors Dr. Nameer Qader, a CNS Hospice Medical Director who passed away, unexpectedly, in the prime of his life, earlier this year. Dr. Qader was a kind man, dedicated to providing hospice care to all.  He was admired by his patients and his colleagues, and will be missed.  Rest in peace, Dr. Qader.
