On Wednesday, February 8, 2012, AVANCE, a local nonprofit dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty through a two-generational approach to education, will host the 11th Annual Toma Mi Corazon Heart Auction at the Camino Real Hotel in downtown El Paso where hundreds of supporters will join forces to raise money to help educate El Paso families.
The event features hearts created by local and regional artists. In addition to the hearts, for the first time ever, the event will feature live auction packages. Some of the packages to be auctioned off that night include:
