The Rachel Kay Stevens Therapy Center (RKSTC) at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center held its 7th Annual Art Show and Auction last weekend, a fundraising event aimed at supporting the operations of the clinic and providing occupational therapy (OT) treatment to uninsured and underinsured children in Memphis.
The Annual Art Show and Auction raised over $6,000 dollars, exceeding the goal of $4,000. The event featured over 100 pieces of art donated by RKSTC patients and local artists.
Established in 2016, the RKSTC was founded to honor of the late Rachel Kay Stevens. A former OT student, Stevens was said to have had an unyielding passion for helping those in need. Bri Morgan, the fundraising chair of the RKTSC, said she hopes to carry forward Rachel’s legacy.
The Rachel Kay Stevens Therapy Center is the only clinic in the Mid-South providing occupational therapy services at no cost to uninsured or underinsured children.
“The art show is a vibrant reflection of our commitment to carrying forward Rachel’s legacy. The funds raised enable us to expand our services and reach even more members of our community,” Morgan said.
Since its inception, the Rachel Kay Stevens Therapy Center has raised over $26,000 in support.
