I recently hosted two fundraisers for Fotos For Favelas. The first fundraiser took place on February 3rd at The Frame Gallery in Downtown Bryan during First Friday, a monthly event in Bryan. I had over 30 choices of photos available for purchase for $10 each and I also had the books available for purchase. The event featured great live Brazilian jazz,
hors d’oeuvres and wine. We were a little unlucky with the weather with horrible thunderstorms and rain, but I ended up having more time to speak to everyone that was interested in the project.
The second fundraiser took place on March 2nd at the same location during the Art Walk. The Art Walk featured designs by several local artists that were displayed through downtown Bryan. This time the weather was beautiful and many people came out to participate.
Together the two fundraisers raised over 400 dollars for UMPMRS.
Special thanks to Greta Watkins for letting us host the fundraiser in her store The Frame Gallery and thank you to everyone who bought a book or photo!
