The “Little Gifts for Life Auction and Celebration” will be held Friday, May 7, in the Grand Ballroom of the Hotel Syracuse Radisson Plaza. Proceeds will benefit the Center for Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders at University Hospital of the State University of New York Health Science Center at Syracuse.
A silent auction will begin at 6:30 p.m. Among the items featured in the live auction, which starts at 8:30 p.m., are a Daewoo automobile, Stickley furniture and Oriental rugs.

Now in its third year, the auction is organized by the families and friends of pediatric patients, and physicians and nurses from the Center for Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders.
