I'm a participant in this year's Doctors & Derrieres charity auction. Here's what the website had to say about this fabulous event:
Doctors and Derrieres is a fundraising event in its 5th year where a group of medical students pose nude for talented local artists and sculptors. Art pieces in diverse mediums celebrating the human body are then donated by each artist to be sold at the main event to raise funds for global health projects.
This year's event takes place on April 30, 2010 from 7 pm to 11 pm at the Enterprise Square Gallery (10230 Jasper Ave) in Edmonton, AB.
All proceeds support Change for Children's Emergency Social Health Fund, a community-led grassroots initiative in rural El Salvador that provides health care in underserved areas.
Doctors and Derrieres is hosted by the University of Alberta medical students in partnership with Change for Children Assocation (www.changeforchildren.org) and Christian Based Communities of El Salvador (CEB'S) with donated support from the Harcourt House.
This year's artists are:
