On Thursday, May 30th we held our second annual gala fundraising event - An Artistic Evening and Art Battle.
We were pleased to showcase the artwork of the following local artists: Reyad Alabdullah, Yulia Balobanova, Maria Ibarra, Shahla Kashani, Adriana Rosselli Londono, Nahid Rokhsana, Kate Salih and Candace Slack.
It is observed as a unique chance for volunteers and organizations to celebrate their efforts, to share their values, and to promote their work among their communities, non-profit organizations, government authorities and the private sector.
