Home Start Hallo-Wine Festival

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. It is a sad truth that the US Advisory Board on Child Abuse and Neglect estimates that approximately 1,500 infants and young children die from maltreatment each year and approximately 70,000 reported cases of child abuse are reported in San Diego County annually.

Home Start works tirelessly to help families identify and use their strengths to build better futures for themselves through the array of programs and services that they offer. Home Start is committed to a community-based collaborative effort to reach children and families at risk and prevent child abuse and neglect.

We are happy to announce that we are joining the cause and will have one of our Artist’s, Devon Browning, performing a live painting at the Home Start Hallo-Wine Festival. Help the cause and join us on October 10th. This event supports Home Start’s programs to strengthen families and protect children in San Diego. Not only will you be able to enjoy the live painting, but also an afternoon of boutique wines, handcrafted beers, specialty spirits, and gourmet hors d’oeurvres at an exclusive private estate near Balboa Park.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Teenage years can be some of the most challenging years of growing up. At this age, you start experiencing new feelings, start thinking about the future, and start becoming responsible for some decision-making. It can be a confusing period of time, especially if you don’t have a solid support system or someone to keep you on track.

This is where Link steps in. Link provides a unique type of support and mentor-ship for teens in need and helps to expose them to new, great things. Link is an AIGA San Diego program that connects at risk youth with artists and creative professionals, encouraging expression, creativity, and self-esteem through innovative workshops and educational scholarships. Every year, students are recruited who will benefit from the artistic, motivational, and financial assistance to establish careers and life goals. Instead of sleeping in like most teenagers do on Saturday mornings, a group of lucky teens will instead be taking creative steps to building a strong future where confidence is building, opportunities are limitless, and a bright future is obtainable.

Ten days out of the year, working professionals in the design, photography, illustration, and other creative fields take time to teach creative workshops for the students.

Students say that they enjoy LINK because they are able to express their feelings. They say it feels like home, they are able to connect with others, and that it is really fun and a great opportunity. They also like that you do something new each time.

We are excited to be a part of Link’s annual event: ‘Art Links Us,’ an art show benefiting this program. Join this amazing cause on October 10th from 6-9pm. We have offered up two free painting classes for their raffle and our very own Artist, Kari Powell, will be auctioning off a piece of her work. Here is Kari’s painted album cover up for auction:

Please visit the event site HERE to bid on an album cover painting of your liking.

If you would like to donate a raffle prize for this event, please contact Karen Morrison at: link@sandiego.aiga.org

We look forward to seeing you there!
