Magic Brotherhood presents Survivors of Rape Art Benefit

I am so excited to announce that Magic Brotherhood is curating a benefit (our very first!) next week for the Center for Community Solutions (CCS). The show will feature seven artists, all who are donating a portion of their art profits to the center, and additionally there will be an opportunity to make direct donations to CCS.

CCS was established in 1969, and every year are able to help over 30,000 people heal from and prevent relationship and sexual violence. They operate San Diego's only rape crisis center as well as a countywide 24-hour bilingual crisis helpline. They host emergency domestic violence shelters and provide legal and counseling services for people affected by rape, domestic violence, and elder abuse. They continually strive to be "a catalyst for caring communities and social justice" and to prevent relationship and sexual violence. CCS is an amazing organization, and though we all hope to never be in situations where we may need to call on them, it is an invaluable resource to know is out there.

We hope that you will come out and support CCS on Tuesday November 12 at the Tin Can!

The event begins at 9 pm and there will be live music provided by San Diego bands California 666 and Artifact.

Artwork in the show provided by Jenna Bogorad, Sean Burdeaux, Tessa Cady, Valerie Hall, Ashlona Hinjosa, Sarah Jane, Robert Khasho, and Danica Molenaar. See you there!
