Thank you to our San Francisco supporters!

On Thursday, October 11, Executive Director and Co-Founder Betsy McCall hosted the Arte & Musica benefit for the Art Monastery at the Diego Rivera Gallery of the San Francisco Art Institute. We exceeded our fundraising goal of $1,500 by bringing in more than $3,500 to support the Art Monastery and its programs. A gigantic thank you to each sponsor and volunteer who made the event such a success.
