Best Strokes 2018



A community collaboration of art & medicine, we are now


Hadassah Bares All for A.R.T. (Awareness, Research & Treatment)


  A Celebration of Life

*a festive evening of auctions, stories, food, body art*

Best Strokes is an event presented by Hadassah Greater Atlanta, raising funds for Breast and Ovarian Cancer and Genetic Research Programs at Hadassah Hospital, and for Breast and Ovarian Cancer Education, Advocacy, and Prevention in the United States. 

It all begins with Paint Day. Held in November, volunteer models, all breast or ovarian cancer survivors, are body-painted from neck to below the navel. Their torsos are then photographed and transferred onto canvas. Artists, photographers, and volunteers donate their time and talent to create a day of healing and unique works of art.

The grand finale is the Best Strokes event, a fundraising gala to be held on March 18, 2018.  We are thrilled to recognize Dale Bearman, MD as our Honoree for his work serving the cancer community, and Tamar Peretz, MD as our Honorary Chair for her cutting edge cancer and genetic research at Hadassah Hospital.  Guests will view the spectacular body art from Paint Day while enjoying delicious food, drink, community, live and silent auctions.
