Update on July 27 RAICES Fundraiser ( The fundraiser now has a venue! The fundraiser will take place at Swannanoa United Methodist Church from 1 - 4 PM. The event will be called Open Heart Concert: Supporting Border Children.

Currently, there are 26 musicians involved, 3 visual artists, and 7 volunteers. There is still room for a few more musicians. What we need more of are visual artists. There is still lots of space for visual artists who like to display their work at the event. If you are a visual artist, it would make a huge difference if you have a work for sale and are willing to have the proceeds go to RAICES.
