They go to Haiti and make art with kids. They do this all through small scale fundraising. Their overhead is crazy low. The payoffs are stellar. 

Come to dinner Saturday night and support these awesome ladies and the work they do!!!!

Don’t miss the third installment of Project HOPE Art’s Annual Donor Dinner. Rendezvous with us on Sept. 14th at Chez Poulet in San Francisco for a five-course Haitian-inspired dinner with music and art.

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.Thank you to our sponsors listed below.

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!
