The Farmworker Coordinating Council of Palm Beach County is hosting its 2023 Fall Fest Event on Friday, Oct. 6 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at CJR Fine Arts & Frame, located at 514 N. State Road 7, Suite B, in Royal Palm Beach.
First Horizon and Frankl Kominsky Injury Lawyers are sponsoring the event. Tickets are $20 and include wine, hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction and the opportunity to win an art piece. At the event, 20 percent of all art sales will benefit the Farmworker Coordinating Council, and 15 percent of custom framing sales will be donated as well. All the proceeds will be used for direct programs and services to farmworker families and others in need in Palm Beach County. For ticket info., visit www.farmworkercouncil.com.
“As a family-owned business, all of us at CJR Fine Arts are very excited to host this truly important cause. This is a great opportunity to be able to help families in need,” General Manager Richard Mauseth said. “We are very excited to have this event that will impact so many families in need in the county.”
Last year, the Farmworker Council provided more than $172,000 in rental/utility assistance, and more than 3,200 unduplicated families received food from its food pantry. “Without the support from the community, we are not able to do what we do,” Executive Director Denise Negron said.
