The Chicano Humanities and Arts Council invites you to to show some Valentine's love for its cultural outreach programs at the fifteenth annual Milagros del Corazón benefit on Friday, January 31. This is CHAC's biggest fundraiser of the year; artists and friends of the group decorate hundreds of blank wooden hearts for the silent auction.

Along with the hearts, there will be the usual gift baskets, services and artworks to bid on -- so many items that CHAC will move the whole party down the street to Space Gallery to accommodate the crowd. Nosh on light appetizers, enjoy a cash bar and browse the riches beginning at 6 p.m.; checkout is from 8:30 to 9 p.m. Admission is $10 or $15 for couples; for more information visit CHAC online or go to the Facebook event page.
