Buy a print! Get a date! Support a worthy cause!

This Saturday, Feb. 12th I’ll be participating in a benefit for my good friend Dolores. I’m donating several prints for a silent auction in the hopes of raising enough money to reunite Dolores with her family in Mexico. Dolore’s story can be read here: www.indiegogo.com/dolores

Here’s the details from my homegirl Maya Chinchilla herself:

Instead of a birthday party this year with your help I am throwing a fundraiser for Lolo and her family to reunite with her 4 brothers and sisters that were kidnapped from her mother 34 years ago. This is the only thing I want for my birthday so please help make my wish come true! For more information about their story go here: www.indiegogo.com/dolores

So far for our silent auction we have:

-Warriors tickets donated by Lisa Marie

-a print and several goodies by artist Rio Yañez

-3 life coaching sessions valued at $100 each by Carmen Iñiguez & Colibri Coaching

-Burlesque class or performance at an event by Cherry Galette

-A meal for two at Lubaos Supper club donated by Irina Contreras and Nico Dacumos

-Dvds of the films ‘Pura Lengua’ and ‘Viernes Girl’ directed by Aurora Guerrero

-A dozen LadyCakes Cupcakes made by Anayvette Ladycakes Martinez

We will have yummy apetizers and we will be selling Sangria and asking for a $5-20 donation at the door. Please invite your friends and we are still taking auction donations and any other offerings you can think of!

I also did the art & design for the flyer. Here is my portrait of Maya and Dolores on its own:

Peace,

Rio
