The eagerly awaited annual “Caring Hearts-Sharing Art” benefit sale for Friendship Bridge is slated for Sunday, Nov. 8, from 3 to 6 pm at the Salida SteamPlant Riverside Annex.
Now in its fifth year, this immensely popular “Salida holiday tradition” fundraiser features a large collection of new and pre-owned artwork, sculpture, jewelry, fine crafts, and unique Guatemalan tipica--all for sale at bargain prices. Experienced shoppers arrive early for the best selection; and a juried assortment of the most exceptional wares also are sold by silent auction. Gourmet snacks, beverages, and music round out the afternoon of fun; and the event is a virtual sellout every year.
Friendship Bridge is a non-profit, non-governmental organization that provides microcredit and educational programs so Guatemalan women and their families can create their own solutions to poverty. All of the goods in the Salida sale are donated; and all proceeds directly benefit Guatemalan families and communities via Friendship Bridge “Circles” in this and other towns throughout the U.S.
The “Caring Hearts-Sharing Art” sale is one of several popular events held annually by the Salida Circle of Friendship Bridge. For more information about this innovative program, visit www.friendshipbridge.org
