The silent auction will also include donated services from local businesses; it benefits CHAC programs. Despite the convenient timing, the theme isn't Valentine's Day, says O'Brien; in fact, artists are encouraged not to make the heart a valentine. "Milagros del Corazon, or Miracles of the Heart, is the title because we are a tiny organization but we run so many programs: three after-school clubs a week, and we serve 40,000 kids a year," she says. "This fundraiser helps support our programs, so these hearts are the miracles of our organization."
The auction runs today from 7 to 9:30 p.m. at Space Gallery, 765 Santa Fe Drive. For tickets, $10 to $15, and more information, call 303-571-0440 or visit www.chacweb.org.
