STUART, FL – In celebration of the Anne M. & Joel L. Pearl Cancer Resource Center’s four-year anniversary, the Avenue D Choir will perform February 9 from 6 to 7pm in the John F. Armstrong Wing of the Blake Library, 2351 SE Monterey Rd, Stuart. Tours of the center will be offered prior to the event. This event is free and open to the public.

The Anne M. and Joel L. Pearl Cancer Resource Center opened in 2011 at the Blake Library in Stuart. The center is designed to educate community members on cancer awareness and prevention and is located in the Reference area on the library’s first floor. The center provides computers and reference materials on cancer prevention and treatment including medical texts and books on personal experience.

To make the center a more visible gathering place, the Tree of Love Honor and Remembrance Panel, designed and painted by artist Brenda Leigh, is a focal point for reflection and self-education. Donations to the center by the community in honor of loved ones are accepted by the Library Foundation of Martin County.

Since 2004 the Avenue D Choir has nurtured the souls and minds of young members of St. Lucie County to ensure bright futures for the leaders of tomorrow.
