It’s been two weeks since we came together for our 2022 Fall Fundraiser and Art Auction, “Expresiones,” and we still feel the love and support of all those who joined us. Our hearts are filled with joy and humility for the immense support we received. You helped us to raise $120,000 for the mental health benefit of Latino families. It’s so wonderful that it almost seems like a dream!

Thanks to the 15 sponsors and more than 250 guests for making this event possible. And thanks to our co-hosts, Luis and Monica Alvarez, for providing us with the beautiful space that evening for us to all come together with a single purpose: to help more families have access to the mental health they need. THANK YOU.

This is the second time that we have held this event and we are so grateful for the unconditional support from the entire community of donors, organizations, artists, online silent auction bidders, staff from El Futuro and all those who, with their contributions, made this night unforgettable.

We will continue our commitment to the mental health of Latino families in North Carolina and we know that we will continue to count on your support.

“When we had to cancel our wedding reception due to COVID we felt like we had missed out on creating beautiful memories. With no intention of rescheduling our wedding, Luis and I without hesitation, thought about donating the space to El Futuro. Seeing the venue light up with great conversation, laughs and calor humano, all in celebration for a great organization like El Futuro made it all worth it. We are so humbled by the work El Futuro does for the Latino community and are grateful to be able to contribute in every way possible.”
