Hispanic Heritage Month Raffle & Art Event
Hispanic Heritage Month Art Exhibit & Raffle
On Friday evening, October 15, The Liaison and the NC Arts Incubator co-hosted a closing reception for Durham artist Antonio Alanís, whose stunning paintings were on exhibit at the Incubator gallery for Hispanic Heritage Month (9/15 to 10/15/2021).
A huge thanks to our friend DJ Cesar Merlos for keeping the event lively and teaching us some Latin dance moves. At the end of the evening, we drew the winners of our raffle ~ see below.
A big thank you to the raffle prize donors, everyone who bought tickets, and the volunteers who helped sell tickets. With your help, The Liaison raised $5,200 for our programs and services.
