Third Annual Project HOPE Art Donor Dinner
"Life is pure adventure, and the sooner we realize that, the quicker we will be able to treat life as art." - Maya Angelou
Come experience a little slice of Haiti, learn about Project HOPE Art's latest projects, and meet our three visiting Haitian artists on Saturday, September 14th at PHA's Third Annual Voodoo Dinner!
For this third installment of Project HOPE Art's Voodoo Dinner series, we will rendezvous in a small art warehouse in San Francisco for a five-course Haitian-inspired dinner with music and art. (Note: This event is BYOB. Feel free to bring your own beer or wine!)
Arrive at 4pm for a Voodoo sculpture exhibition and a meet-and-greet with our three visiting Haitian artists. Enjoy light appetizers and try your luck at our wine raffle bar. Get creative at our Make-Your-Own-Musical-Instrument station, and let Brass Band: Mission whirl you away with the rhythmic purring of New Orleans Jazz.
Dinner will be served promptly at 5:30pm. Between courses, be inspired by brief, informative speeches by members of Project HOPE Art and the artists of Atiz Rezistans. Learn about life in Haiti, the art of found-object assemblage, and more, while savoring a delicious fusion of Creole flavors.
During dessert, get ready to pounce on some fabulous treasures during our live auction, featuring one-of-a-kind Haitian art work, massages, coffee and more!
At 7:30pm we will rise together and follow the band outdoors for a short celebratory parade, marching together in honor of art, music, adventure and life!
You are welcome to keep your homemade musical instrument, and we encourage you to revisit this magical evening by making music all year long.
