Baliker Donation

PALM COAST, Fla., March 6, 2019 – On March 2, internationally acclaimed artist, Paul Baliker, donated $800 to the AdventHealth Palm Coast Foundation while at the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Fortune Group Properties at European Village.

Baliker and his mother, Joan, recently held an art show and gave a portion of those proceeds to the AdventHealth Palm Coast Foundation. This donation will specifically support the hospital’s breast cancer fund and the Judith C. Macko Cancer Resource Center, which provides free wigs, turbines, drainage vests, and many other items to anyone undergoing cancer treatment, even if they aren’t being treated at an AdventHealth facility.

Baliker has sculpted for more than 35 years and has created more than 1,000 pieces, mainly in wood and bronze. He describes his pieces as “life-sized, monumental and even fractional.”

Joan is a lifelong artist in a number of mediums, with work that touches on themes from nature to religion and beyond.
