Benefit Sunday for Fine Arts Magnet Academy

 A FAMA fund-raiser will be held on Sunday, Nov. 2, from 5 to 8 p.m. at The Quaking Aspen Cafe & Gallery,  located at 456 Pagosa St. in the downtown historical district.

Come and help benefit Pagosa’s artists of the future.

 FAMA is the Fine Arts Magnet Academy at Pagosa Springs High School. The program encourages meaningful artistic expression in a variety of media while developing and nurturing students’ innate abilities and dormant potential.

In practice, a student in the program participates in quarterly master classes taught by professional artists, while pursuing the creation of their own body of work.

 Tickets to the fund-raiser are  $20 and can be purchased at The Quaking Aspen prior to Sunday, or they can be purchased at the door the night of the event.

 Finger food will be served with a ticket purchase and the cash bar will be open, serving up special drinks.

 There will be musical performances throughout the evening by Harvey Schwartz, Bob Hemenger, D.C. Duncan and others.

Event sponsors include Citizens Bank of Pagosa Springs, Riverbend Engineering, the Pagosa Springs Police Department and the Archuleta County Sheriff Department.

Pagosans making donations include Enchanted Valley, Judd Cooney, Peggy Bergon and Rob Shoffner.
