Event description

Description

As of Sept 2017 the US commonwealth of Puerto Rico has been devastated by hurricane Maria. The island has lost 90% of functionality. Power grids have gone down. Gasoline for vehicles and generators has run out. Hospitals are failing to provide medical care to those who are sick or injured due to lack of electricity, running water and supplies. These are just a small list of what is happening. People are dying and they need more help, now.

As of now, there are only two postal locations on the entire island that are able to receive any kind of packages and distribution ability is limited. Our neighbors, families, and communities are working diligently to get more people down there as soon as possible to help distribute supplies. At this point it is going to take many people to even begin rebuilding the destruction that has wiped out an entire island of American citizens.

80% of money generated in art sales will go directly to the people and places they are needed. Secondly, we will be distributing a % of funds to the the Hispanic Federation UNIDOS who are providing immediate assistance to the victims of this catastrophe and the remaining 20% towards supplies, venue, food and contributors.

This is an opportunity to shine a light in the dark and celebrate LIFE through art , music food and community. Our community deserves to be celebrated and uplifted, especially during one of the most difficult times we’ve ever faced as a people.

This event will be in the format of an art auction and reception gathering. It will feature a variety of original and printed artwork which will be available for purchase through the auction. Pieces contributed by collectors, NYC artist Teofilio Oliviere, Bronx artist Jozette Rodriguez, and many more. The event will feature vendors, special performances, live painting and more! Food and beverages provided by Uncle Boobies Soul Food restaurant.

Come out and browse/buy art & jam to DJ Brian Lavoe's perfect mix of party rock and PR pride.

Payments & Donations will be accepted via credit card or online payment via paypal and can also be made out directly to one of the previously mentioned organizations.
