It’s that time of year again for a fiesta! Our Summer Fiesta Benefit is coming up WEDNESDAY, JUNE 20 from 6-8pm at The HP Gallery at Calumet Photographic in NYC. Just like our previous years we are hosting this benefit to raise money to support our programs for artists and communities.
This year the Lily Auchincloss Foundation has generously offered to match every dollar we raise up to $10,000 by June 30th! Help us reach our goal by making a DONATION or purchasing a ticket–this is the only fiesta in town where $38 will get you drinks, delicious food, door prizes and a chance to participate in our silent auction by purchasing amazing prints by En Foco artists.
Since we are a non-for-profit, your contribution goes directly toward the costs of exhibitions, publishing Nueva Luz, providing our artists with financial compensation for their work, and free workshops that help serve our community. The artists we exhibit in our Touring Gallery program are given a valuable opportunity to display their work in community spaces. This allows us to connect artistically underserved communities and emerging artists from diverse cultures.
Your contribution to our Summer Fiesta Benefit is a great start to help us continue to promote cultural diversity in the photographic field and reach our $10,000 goal. So come join us and help us help others… let’s Fiesta!
Some of our generous friends and fellow En Foco artists have donated their prints to be featured in our Silent Auction: Chuy Benitez, Adál, Lola Flash, Muema, Frank Gimpaya, Groana Melendez, Anjali Bhargava, George Malave, Heather McClintock, David Taylor, Miriam Romais, Ruben Natal-San Miguel, Helena de Vengoechea and many others.
Other Silent Auction Items include: a 7-day resort stay in Playa del Carmen ($900 value); consultation with M.V. Swanson with Publish Your Photography book ($350 value); dental services from PerioNYC ($600+ value), and more!
We have prizes as well! Door prize tickets (2 for $10/5 for $20) can win you great gifts: Photo District News magazine subscriptions, La Palapa’s famous brunch for four, $50 gift certificates for En Foco’s Print Collectors Program, Gold Passes to PhotoPlus Expo; photo books, and more!
Or, if you’re unable to attend, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to help us reach our goal.
