Abante International had the distinct pleasure of partnering with the Asociación de Industriales de Puerto Rico to raise funds for their choice charity organization; Hogar de Niños Forjadores de Esperanza located in Bayamón, Puerto Rico. The organization is a shelter for children less than five years of age, and provides care for victims of abuse, orphans, and runaways.
The event featured mixed media artists from all over the island as well as local celebrities, entertainers and successful business entrepeneurs.
Through their combined efforts, both organizations were able to raise several thousand dollars for the home for children, making a daily impact in the lives of the children and displaced mothers.
Abante students participated by helping the management set up for the event as well as serving the guests as hostesses, waiters/waitresses, and by catering to the artists. Following are photos from the evening affair. Click on a photo and scroll through the album to view all photos.
