Solidaridad Benefit for Puerto Rico, We Can Make A Difference!

Please join us in Solidaridad with Puerto Rico, Thursday November 9, 5-9 PM.  We are hosting a Solidaridad Art Auction to benefit and support relief efforts in light of the current Puerto Rican humanitarian crisis and disaster. Funds raised will go to grassroots organizations and the transportation of direct delivery relief and more. Over 30 artists are generously donating original art for the auction. During the auction Radio Wolftown will be spinning a live DJ set and Lady Enchantress will be performing followed by a report back on the relief efforts in Puerto Rico by AgitArte. Participation in this event will help support lifesaving initiatives and humanitarian relief efforts. Art enthusiasts and supporters bid for the chance to own a piece of original art for a good cause. The Solidaridad Art Auction Benefit will be followed by an after-party at B3 Restaurant & Bar with DJ Take Flyte spinning hip hop, house, latin & soul from 10 PM-12:30 AM. B3 will provide stationed bites for attendees and 100% of Collective Arts Brewing beer sales will go to PR relief.
