The Connect Silent Art Auction and Benefit Cocktail Party was a memorable evening for everyone who attended and a very successful event. Latinas 4 Latinas was very honored by the presence of 250 guests who connected with the cause, the artists and with our mission. We would have liked to report the final results earlier, but due to an unexpected interest of guests in acquiring more art pieces after the event, we continued to sell until very recently.
As you know, this fundraiser was to benefit Nueva Vida, a community-based non-profit organization dedicated solely to helping out poor or low-income women with cancer so that they can continue to provide them with patient navigation services through the existing complex healthcare system from the moment they are diagnosed to acquiring proper treatment to enrolling them in post-treatment with group therapy. We are happy to have raised more than $30,000 (gross),with part of the proceeds going to support their services and programs.
Furthermore, we like to communicate that we received such positive feedback from our guests about the high quality selection of artists and their art work as well as both the venue and food, that we feel very proud of what we accomplished together as a community. We can’t thank enough everyone who participated at CONNECT from our generous artists and galleries to our sponsors, volunteers, and our supportive guests, for being part of this unforgettable fundraiser! Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts!
Lastly, in consideration of the recent earthquake that stroke Mexico on September 19, we would like to report that we were also able to raise $370 at the event for the victims of the earthquake, and we were able to donate it directly to Brigada Rescate Topos of Mexico. Thank you to those who donated for this cause as well.
May your now CONNECTED hearts continue to be in touch with us in future events.
Thank you for your support and generosity.
