On Saturday August 4th in an beautiful eco-home in Los Feliz, NextAid and Arts:Earth Partnership came together for an, innovative, multicultural, experiential event to help raise funds for two dynamic organizations!
The event was a major success! People were raving about the music, the art, the food and the vibe. Check out some of the great photos by Ehron Asher of Serendipity Arts and Paul Redmond. Feel free to spread them around and tag people. Ehron's are here. Paul's are here.
Stay tuned for video coming from Cassidy Sullivan.
Our fundraising goal is $10000 of which $6000 was raised at the event. Please help us reach our goal!
Both NextAid and AEP work with the arts community to mitigate some of the planet’s most pressing environmental and societal problems with tangible projects. Funds raised are being used to further implement AEP'S environmental sustainable certification program in Los Angeles targeting cultural facilities. NextAid will use the funds to finish construction of a sustainable youth workshop in Nairobi, Kenya.
