Comunidad is a non-profit organization formed by ArtAndes, a dealer of high-quality, hand-woven textiles from Peru. The organization works with the indigenous people of Paccha, a mountain village in the Peruvian highlands, whose lives and communities were decimated by the Shining Path terrorist group. Comunidad is dedicated to providing the community with the tools and resources they need to get back on their feet.
This year celebrates Comunidad's 10-years of service to the people of Paccha. Everyone is invited to a special night of great food, live music, a silent auction, a raffle for hand-woven tapestries, and much more!
Fundacion Comunidad Annual Fundraiser
Date: Saturday, April 21, 2012
Time: 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

I'm continuing my tradition of donating custom artwork to the silent auction, where I will create a one-of-a-kind portrait of the winning bidder's loved one. This prize has been very effective at raising funds for Comunidad over the years, so I'm hoping for repeat success!
