Project Art 2012: Third Annual Fundraiser In NYC Raises Over $150,000
In December 2012, Project Paz successfully hosted its third annual Project Art charity event in New York City. The organization raised over $150,000 U.S. dollars to further its mission of promoting peace in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico by supporting underprivileged children in the community. Funds raised during this benefit help fund Ampliando el Desarrollo de los Niños (ADN extending children’s development), a program by the Fundación del Empresariado Chihuahuense, A.C. (FECHAC) that creates after school activities for low-income children in Ciudad Juarez. The program provides a safe environment that allows children to expand their academic skills – and most importantly, that protects them from street violence. For the first time in the event’s history, the auction included 21 one-of-a-kind photographs inspired by Mexico, which were printed by Duggal visual solutions. Carolina Herrera, Proenza Schouler, Tommy Hilfiger, Narciso Rodriguez, Sara Beltran and Derek Lam were some of the top fashion and jewelry designers who captured and donated these unique photographs. Additionally, more than thirty pieces from contemporary artists were auctioned off. Curated by Anne Huntington of AMH Industries, the list of artists included Alex Hank, Mauricio Limón, Mösco and Alejandra Ugarte Bedwell. Some of the works are still featured in Paddle8. Many familiar faces from the fashion and art world gathered at the event to admire and bid on the art, sip on specialty cocktails from Jarritos, Dobel Tequlia and Bohemia beer and support the cause. Soho restaurant Papatzul catered the event with 100% Mexican hors d’oeuvres while DJ David Lipke spun a mix of Latin and holiday tunes that provided an inspiring ambience. .
