ElevArte is a community-based organization that uses the arts as a means for youth development. We create youth-activated safe spaces within each of our three core programs: In-School Residencies, Out-of-School-Time Programs, and Community Celebrations. Our culture-oriented fundraisers help continue the tradition of offering free art classes to children in the community. Support today!

Noche de loteríA

The annual Noche de Lotería takes place every Spring and benefits free art programs and safe spaces for ElevArte's #atpromise youth. Community members generously gather to play a traditional game of Loteria for a chance to win art made by ElevArte Youth.

Each ticket purchase includes game cards, beverages and light snacks to support more than 160 paid opportunities for teens in the summer.

La Pozolada

The Annual Pozolada features a delectable array of Pozoles—from traditional rojo, verde y blanco to more contemporary vegetarian versions.  Community members, local restaurants and chefs are generously donating pots of their signature Pozole’s to help support and ensure a robust future for free out-of-school-time art classes for youth, including ceramics classes.

Maria León, ElevArte Executive Director says, “Because we are committed to our community traditions, this fundraiser brings us together as family to break-bread and support the continued education of our youth.” 

Each ticket purchase includes a one-of-a-kind-artist-made bowl, all you can eat pozole, drinks and entertainment.
