"Colors Of Houston" Vox Culture 7th Anniversary Fundraiser says
Vox Culture will be hosting its 7th anniversary fundraiser on the evening of Sunday, September 27th, 2015. The event will take place from 6:00PM-9:00PM at Chateau Crystale (2517 S. Gessner Rd., Houston, TX 77063).

Colors of Houston will feature Houston-based artists in the areas of dance, music, spoken word poetry, live painting, and more. Artists so far include: [POETS] Amir Safi, Zachary Caballero, Chris Wise, and Shen Ge; [MUSICIANS] Joi Keeling (aka Sugar Joiko) and Rocko Stedy Narvios; [DANCERS] Karel Flores Houston Dance Team; [PAINTERS] Norberto Clemente, Suzanne Buckland, Fatema Josh, MaryAnn Lucas and Jeremy Tolbert. FEATURED CHEFS include: Soren Pedersen, (former head chef of Sorrel Urban Bistro), Jamie Zelko (Zelko's Bistro), Sean Carroll (Melange Creperie), and the team of Moon Jamaluddin (Events by Momo). The list of artists is expected to expand, so check back often!

THEME: Colors of Houston will showcase the numerous ethnicities that make up the United States, via the arts, and examine how we can find unity in diversity. For example, a live painter will be present to illustrate this by asking the audience, “What color represents you?” With the issue of race dominating current headlines, we believe there is no better time to celebrate diversity and promote acceptance.

DRESS CODE: We encourage you to wear a suit or dress that in some form or way includes a color that you feel is a symbol of "empowerment" or feel best represents you as an individual!

GOAL: Colors of Houston will help fund Vox Culture through 2015 and into the 2016 fiscal year. Funds raised will support Vox Culture's partner of the year, the Houston Independent School District (HISD), with whom we are working to alleviate challenges within Education, specifically literacy. The funds will also support our projects for 2016, where we will be addressing the issue of Economic Development amongst under-served neighborhoods. Finally, funds raised at Colors of Houston will help support staff, artist honorariums, technical equipment, and internship opportunities, as well as bring us closer towards the goal of creating scholarships for high school students seeking to pursue educational advancement or careers in arts or advocacy related fields.

SPONSORHIP: If individuals would like to sponsor specific parts of Colors of Houston, there are several available options listed below in the ticket section. For further inquiries, please send a message to viktor.kopic@voxculture.org.
