The CARTI Gift Shop
The CARTI Gift Shop is a project of the CARTI Auxiliary and opened in January 2018. Located on the 2nd floor of the CARTI Cancer Center in Little Rock, Auxiliary members volunteer their time selling candy, gifts and sundries to CARTI patients, their families and team members. A portion of the net proceeds from the Gift Shop support CARTI each year.

CARTI Searcy Holiday Luminary Project
Each year members of the CARTI Searcy Auxiliary help light up the White County Courthouse Square with the Holiday Luminary Project. Donors purchase luminary sacks bearing the names of people they wish to honor or memorialize and the luminaries are put on display during the traditional lighting of the courthouse the first Saturday in December. This annual holiday event provides financial assistance to CARTI Searcy cancer patients, buying needed equipment and underwriting patient educational efforts. Hundreds of people participate in the Holiday Luminary project each year.
To purchase a Luminary, please contact Kim Houser at Kims.Fumc@gmail.com. Luminaries may be purchased online beginning November 1, 2020.
