Dear Friends,

On behalf of the Child Mind Institute, we are proud to be hosting an auction that will be taking place tonight at Sotheby's. The Child Mind Institute is committed to finding more effective treatments for childhood psychiatric and learning disorders, building the science of healthy brain development, and empowering children and their families with help, hope, and answers. We would like to send a very special thank you to all the artists that have donated such fine examples of their work to The Child Mind Institute Auction. To the right, you'll see four of the works included in the auction. To see the complete group, visit The Brant Foundation website.

We hope that you will keep the importance of this charitable cause in mind while bidding. This is a great opportunity to purchase a work from these talented artists, while simultaneously contributing to this important research that will benefit the future of our children's health care.

If you would like to learn more about the Child Mind Institute, please visit their website here. Thank you so much for your participation.

All the best,

Stephanie and Peter Brant
