For a Brighter Venezuela- Fundraiser at the Greenwich YMCA

Please join us for a fantastic evening of Venezuelan art, musical performances, and food at the Greenwich YMCA and help us raise funds for humanitarian relief in Venezuela. Venezuela is experiencing a severe humanitarian crisis that is hard to overestimate or even for us to grasp. Several news media have described conditions as “worse than a war zone”. Food and medicine shortages are severe. Families go through garbage to look for food. Basic services like water and electricity are intermittent and unpredictable. The IMF estimates inflation could reach 10 million percent by the end of 2019. Despite the crisis, Venezuela boasts exceptional resources, both human and natural. Through this event we aim to showcase our heritage, while raising funds to assist with humanitarian relief.

We are featuring a wonderful musical and artistic program that includes performances by Venezuelan musicians, and artwork for sale by local Venezuelan artists. Have a glass of wine and try great Venezuelan food. Entrance tickets are $20; raffle tickets are $10. If you cannot join us, please consider a donation. Any amount will go a long way to help Venezuelans get through this crisis. All funds will go to three registered 501(c)3 nonprofits run by Venezuelans living in the US: Cuatro Por Venezuela, I Love Venezuela Foundation and Asoprograr. ¡GRACIAS.
