Sunday Dec 19th, 2010. 12pm - 10pm
A charity event with Art, Music, Food and Art Auction to help children in a Tijuana orphanage home:
Casa Hogar Niños de la Promesa http://casahogardetijuana.galeon.com/
Playas de Tijuana

Art, Music & Culture AMC will be hosting this charity event to collect toys, cloths, and donations to supporting
Centro Comunitario Makio Cultural http://makiocentrocultural.galeon.com/
who will be hosting a Posada [Christmas dinner] and giving the gifts and cloths to the children at the orphanage home at Casa Hogar Niños de la Promesa in Playas de Tijuana. Any cloths or toys left over will be distributed to other orphanage homes.
Although children are orphan for many reasons with the underlining cause of poverty other events have an influence too such but as the "drug war" in Mexico affects many innocents and children are not the exception some are left orphan and sometimes even get cough in the cross fire. Most of the fire arms and ammo/bullets come to Mexico from America, not to mention the demand for illicit drugs. So why not send these children toys and help then have nice Christmas dinner and put a smile on their face!

During the Holidays let’s help put a smile on these little ones! We'll be collection toys or donations to help them have a nice Christmas dinner and a pair of cloths if possible. Also your chance to purchase original art from the silent art-auction...homemade food and more!
All proceeds will go directly to this cause!
