The Roper St. Francis Benefit
The monetary strain from cancer treatment can make even the most basic of needs impossible to maintain. Glassbaby mixes art and love into an innovative solution. The organization has now given over $890,000.00 to assist cancer fighters who maintain overwhelming living costs.
Glassybaby travels to Charleston on May 10th and will donate 10% of proceeds directly to Roper Hospital. Glassybaby has been featured on Martha Stewart, Yahoo! News, and is even partly owned by Amazon.com CEO Jeff Bezo.

About Lee Rhodes
Glassybaby founder Lee Rhodes was recently named Entrepreneur magazine’s Entrepreneur of the Year. She is the very first woman to achieve the honor. Her story is an inspiration to many.
Lee was fighting her third battle with cancer while raising three small children in 1998 when she first dropped a tea light into a handmade, colorful, glass cup. Lee found hope and healing in the soothing light and experienced the peace and calm she needed to heal. She was determined to spread that joy to others. Lee began hiring artists to make more colorful, glass votives and Glassybaby was born.
