DESCRIPTION

Since  2002, the PICO YOUTH AND FAMILY CENTER (PYFC), a Santa Monica non-profit organization, has served hundreds of at-risk youth on the Westside by providing much needed case management, counseling, tutoring, computer training, job readiness preparation, and music production training.  PYFC targets youth ages 16-24 that are most at risk – including those who are failing academically, not in school, or on probation.  Faced with a tough economic funding climate, PYFC is counting on the success of its 3nd annual fundraising effort, Art for Hearts, to help meet the costs associated with serving at-risk youth. 

ART FOR HEARTS will include a silent auction of uniquely-crafted hearts and other art by youth artists and established artists like Michael Amescua, Judy Baca, Barbara Carrasco, Robbie Conal, Alex Kizu, Ernie Lucero, JC Hernandez  Munoz  and others.  The evening will also include music by the Santa Monica High School jazz band, delicious food, wine, and guest appearances.
