2-­‐Day Art Sale and Raffle Benefitting the Rukmini Foundation    

(Pittsburgh,     PA)          The Rukmini Foundation, a local nonprofit serving girls in  rural Nepal, is      hosting an art  sale  and  raffle on Friday, January 18  (6PM-­‐11PM) and  Saturday, January 19      (12PM-­‐5PM) at  emerge, a community space for arts and  technology, located at 55 Penn    Avenue in Garfield.          
The 2-­‐day event will include cocktails, live music and showcase street art,  photography, paintings and    mixed media from emerging Pittsburgh artists; a portion of the proceeds will provide scholarships for    8th-­‐10th grade girls in Nepal.    
Located in South Asia between Thailand and  India, Nepal is  one of the poorest countries in the     world. With  an average income of  just $2 per day, poverty and hardship are a reality for Nepali    people,  girls and women especially.    
Education is at the heart of breaking this cycle. The Rukmini Foundation was built on the belief that to    educate a girl is to educate a community.  By providing equal access to education and regular medical     care, the Foundation protects young girls from dangers of exploitation and enables them to qualify for    college or employment.    
The   Rukmini   Foundation   supported   its   freshman   class  of  10   students   in   Spring   2013.    These young, empowered girls and future classes will be the catalyst  for true development  and  positive change in  Nepal.
