Art Night – Fundraiser

Join us for an fun evening of Art, Friends and Fundraising on January 21st starting at 6:30 at Designs by Wine!

EVERYONE can do this…no experience in art is required. The instructor gives detailed, step by step instructions and is available to answer any questions you may have. It’s a BLAST!

Tasty New Mexico wines will be available, as well as plenty of non-alcoholic beverages.

Cost is only $35 a person and proceeds will go towards our 2015 backpack project for New Mexico kids.

This activity is great for a group of friends, co-workers, families and date night. Basically, it’s for anyone that wants to have a great time with fun people!

Register early, as space is limited, and these classes often sell out.

Huge THANK YOU going out to all the wonderful volunteers that came out to help at this year’s Backpack Assembly Party!
Together, we put together and distributed 619 backpacks.  During the week, we got requests for a few more backpacks for a final count this year of 638!

Special thanks goes to Walgreens, Chick-fil-A on San Mateo and Montgomery, Thrivent Financial Services,  Target, Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary church, Route 66 Civitans, Henry Schein Dental, Firehouse Subs,  Korean Methodist Church, Walmart and the many individual donors who made this year’s event possible.

This year we distributed bags to kids in Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, Los Lunas, Gallup, Mountainair, Roswell, Cuba and Shiprock in schools, homeless shelters and a domestic violence shelter.

Each and everyone one of you are fantastic and a blessing to families all over New Mexico!
