LA PAZ - UPDATE The Festival D'Arte La Paz 2010

The Festival D'Arte La Paz 2010 organized by the artist's group "The La Paz 6" was a great success and the feedback we've received has been very positive.
We hosted 68 artist booths with everything from jewelry and clothing to photography, sculpture and paintings. Three restaurants offered their culinary arts. Eight musical groups performed for the Festival attendees from noon until 6 pm. We had no way to count attendance, but we estimate well over 500 people came out to the Festival. We had a wonderful group of volunteers who worked very hard to make the event a success as well.
We will be donating a total of $20,420 pesos to two local charities:
FANLAP, AC (Fundación Ayuda Niños La Paz, AC) (20%): $4084 = A scholarship for one student for a year.
Baja Dogs La Paz, A.C. (80%): $16,336
