New York (TADIAS) – The holiday season is upon us and so is the annual Artists for Charity (AFC) benefit and art auction, which supports the Ethiopian American organization’s volunteer-managed group home in Addis Ababa that houses children double-orphaned by HIV/AIDS. The event, which has been held every year in Washington, DC since 2006, is coming to New York City for the first time this year. The 2014 gathering will be held following World AIDS Day on Saturday December 6th at Impact Hub NYC in Manhattan.
“Join us for an amazing evening featuring a taste of Ethiopia and an exciting live auction,” states the press release. “AFC will feature artwork from local and international artists. Proceeds go to support AFC projects such as the AFC Childrens Home in Ethiopia.”
On its website AFC adds: “We are comprised of artists and volunteers from all over the world who donate our time, passion, sweat, creativity, and artwork for the sake of change. Some of us paint; some of us write; some of us are not even artists. But all of us believe that there is no such thing as a small act of compassion. Dedicated people, united and working together, can change the world. We are Artists for Charity.”
