Event description

Description

International women’s day is an important reminder of unity and strength for women globally. Every year Tamara Torres Art celebrates this wonderful movement by producing a way to give back to the women in our community. Last year alone we were able to help over 60 single mothers and women in need including 2 families who lost their home to a fire by collecting donations from all over New Jersey. This year Tamara Torres Art is focusing on a hard-hitting issue that will continue to need attention before and after International Women’s Day, hurricane Maria has destroyed Puerto Rico leaving so many families and women torn with little to survive on. As a Puerto Rican activist for women in Trenton, NJ and an international artist action was vital for a way to produce a small relief for the women in Puerto Rico. I extended a call to Casa Cultura and Artworks in Trenton, NJ two vital art cultural organizations in my city and together we are producing "Women Helping Women Rise" -. We reached out to Olga from Merchant Association in Utuado to provide funding that would provide personal hygiene, supplies, and support to the women in Utuado Puerto Rico.

Although there was has been a universal relief to the island there are some resources that are still very much needed and forgotten. On March 8, 2018, we will host an event at Artworks were we will have entertainment with DJ Shelby, Hispanic dancers, poets from NY and NJ, food, drinks, and a live telecommunication with the Merchant Association in Utuado, Puerto Rico. Tamara Torres and her team will be flying to Puerto Rico and facilitating the funding with the Merchant Association to distribute the supplies to the women in Puerto Rico.


We need your help tickets for the fundraisers are $30.00 dollars and we invite you to purchase a ticket and join us on March 8, 2018 at Artworks 19 Everett Alley, Trenton, NJ 08611 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. If you are unable to join us it’s okay to donate what you can from $1.00 to $1,000 please contact Tamara Torres at tamaratorresart@gmail.com or 609-325-8622 for any questions.
