Artists for Charity Using Art to Make Hope for Children With HIV/AIDS
Artists for Charity (AFC) will host its 8th Annual Benefit and Art Auction after World AIDS Day, on Saturday, December 14th, at 7:00 pm. This event features a taste of Ethiopia, an exciting live auction featuring artwork from local and international artists, and an opportunity to help change the lives of orphaned children living with HIV in Ethiopia.
A small grassroots organization with a big cause, AFC operates a Children’s Home that raises HIV positive, double-orphaned children in a loving family environment. Vulnerable HIV+ children in the community are also supported through AFC’s outreach program, and children’s wings in hospitals and clinics are transformed through the ArtHeals program.
AFC was one of the first NGOs to accept children living with HIV in Ethiopia, with the strong belief that through love, support and access to good health care and treatment, these children could not only survive, but thrive and achieve their dreams. This is exactly what the AFC children have done. Today, AFC is proud to have sent children to college, and to have others achieving success in their careers.
AFC relies solely on individual donations, and has been able to succeed over the years through the continuous efforts of dedicated volunteers, artists, sponsors and donors. The Annual Holiday Benefit and Art Auction based in Washington, DC, has been a driving force in raising funds for the organization.
Join AFC at the 8th Annual Benefit and Art Auction for an evening of art, entertainment, awareness, food and drinks. Advance tickets are only $45, and entry is $50 at the door.
