The event creator says
This May 30th, 2015 the Association of Raza Educators will be holding its annual scholarship banquet for undocumented students at the Centro Cultural de la Raza. At this year’s banquet, we will be awarding at least seven scholarships of $1,000 each to deserving high school and college students. With the banquet being one of our major fundraisers, we are hoping to have 200 people in attendance this year! At the banquet we will be having an art auction, comprised of all donated art by various local artists –and we are asking for your art & support. If you have any art pieces that you would like to donate for the auction, we would greatly appreciate your contribution! Your art not only helps our students attend college, but is also a continued sign of your support for equitable educational opportunities for ALL.

The Association of Raza Educators believes that education is essential to the preservation of civil and human rights, and provides the foundation for all progress, political and economic, thus it must be a basic human right of all people. Hence, A.R.E. created the undocumented student scholarship fund, which awards monies to students who have demonstrated both academic excellence and a strong commitment to serving their community.

Because A.R.E. is a non-profit organization run wholly by dedicated teachers, students and community members, donations in whole go directly to the scholarship fund, and the scholarship recipients. To date, A.R.E. has awarded several thousands of dollars to these highly deserving students, and thanks to your contribution, we will be making the college dreams of several more students come true this year.

If you have a piece(s) of art that you would like to donate, we are happy to pick it up or can arrange a drop-off time. We extend our deepest gratitude in advance both for your contribution, and for your continued support toward the realization of social justice for all!

Deadline May 27th, 2015

Sincerely,

A.R.E.
