"Engineers Without Borders was working on a bridge for children to cross a river so they could get to school," says the ACFFC's Sandra Renteria. "That bridge has been wiped out."
The two organizations will combine fundraising forces at The Art of Humanity this afternoon at the Kirk Norlin Studio and Gallery. The gala will feature a silent auction of over fifty donated paintings -- including some by Smithsonian artists -- music, dancing, fine food and wine tasting. "It's just amazing," says Renteria. "Everything has been donated, and all of the money raised goes directly to the people of Haiti -- all of it."
The benefit runs from 1 to 5 p.m. at the Norlin Gallery, 4430 Tennyson Street; tickets are $14 at the door. Call 303-477-1847 or visit www.kirknorlin.com for more information. -- Kity Ironton
