The Pico Youth & Family Center will hold its fourth annual Art for Hearts fundraiser Thursday in an effort to raise $7,000 to keep the center’s doors open.
The evening will include a silent auction of uniquely-crafted hearts made by youth as well as established artistis like Alex Kizu, Sand One, Ernie Lucero, JC Munoz Hernandez and others.
The evening will also include music by DJ Sloepoke and L.A. bands Quinto Sol, La chamba Chicha and other guest appearances.
PYFC offers case management, counseling, tutoring, computer training and other services to at-risk youth between the ages of 16 and 24. With the help of PYFC, many of those youth have gone on to earn college degrees and get jobs.
The event will be held at The Townhouse & Del Monte Speakeasy at 52 Windward Ave. in Venice. Tickets cost $20 per person, and can be purchased online at pyfcheartofthecommunity.eventbrite.com or at the door. Festivities run from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m.
