Want the warm light of a glassybaby in your home? Purchase one during May and June at the University Village store and 10 percent of the proceeds will benefit the Hutchinson Center’s Family Assistance Fund.

The Family Assistance Fund helps patients and families with nonmedical expenses like groceries and child care.

Evolving from cancer journey of Lee Rhodes, glassybabys are small, practically indestructible blown-glass votives that symbolize for her "that deep breath we often forget to take." Unique and individual, glassybabys come in more than 70 translucent colors that flicker and glow—like life.   

The University Village glassybaby is located in the main corridor near the children's play structure.
