The Kerry Jon Walker Fund (KJWF), a non-profit organization dedicated to helping humanity and supporting those affected by poverty, presents its annual benefit evening Art Auction. All proceeds support the fund’s mission, including mission service trips for teens supporting sustainable programs to improve health, education, and economic opportunity for those in need.
A family friendly evening of delights awaits where art and handmade crafts from local and international fine artists are on display in a festive atmosphere. Children’s activities, live entertainment by “World Music Award” winners Kalifa & Koliba, catering by “Best of the South Shore” winner Clandestine Kitchen and a cash bar are highlights. A Rwandan market table features one-of-a-kind African treasures, fine art selections and a local services auction. Purchases make wonderful gifts, support a great cause and may be taken home the same night.
KJWF provides financially challenged urban teen students the opportunity to create global objectivity and travel abroad in charitable service. KJWF provides student service trips to Rwanda, where they have assisted 500 orphaned teens at the Agahozo-Shalom Youth Village. While providing service to this community abroad, the Boston teens, most never having never traveled out of the country, gain a new understanding of the developing world.
Admission and auction purchases may be paid for by cash, check and credit card on site. To learn more or support the Kerry Jon Walker Fund, visit thekerryfund.org.
