CRANFORD, NJ – Tammie Ramos Crispino, owner of Fire Me Up! Studio and Puerto Rico native, has arranged a nationwide benefit to aid Puerto Rico in the wake of Hurricane Maria.
On Tuesday, Oct. 24, participating art studios across 15 states will hold a simultaneous canvas painting event, with proceeds benefiting Harimau Conservation, Inc., an organization based in Puerto Rico that aims to empower communities through conservation and education.
During the event, studio staff will provide guided instruction to paint images of a famous door in San Juan. There will also be light refreshments, a silent auction, and on-site spray tans from Bella Organici in exchange for a $25 donation.
“We partnered with more than 25 other studios nationwide to inject color and life back into Puerto Rico through art after the devastation of Hurricane Maria,” Crispino said in a press release.
Crispino organized the event with studios in Connecticut, Georgia, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.
“Come paint for a cause,” Crispino said in the press release. “Join us and help bring relief to the millions of Americans now in need.”
The event will take place from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Fire Me Up! Studio. There is an entrance fee of $50 per person. Registration is required and can be done here.
