Many paintings have been signed by the performers. Please join us as Live Nation hosts the 2nd Rock & Art Charity Auction at the Opera House on November 15th.

About: Action for Boston Community Development, Inc. Action for Boston Community Development was founded in 1962 with a mission to combat poverty by promoting self-help for low-income people and neighborhoods. Today ABCD provides a better quality of life for over 100,000 Greater Boston residents annually through innovative and effective programs. http://www.bostonabcd.org/




About: Artists For Humanity Artists For Humanity’s (AFH’s) mission is to provide underserved city youth with the keys to self-sufficiency through paid employment in the arts. AFH began in 1991 with what was then an ambitious and unconventional idea – young people can provide, through their creativity, tangible services to the commercial world. This concept is now recognized as social entrepreneurship and is a proven model for youth development. Training and employing urban teens is a solution to economic disenfranchisement and has a resounding effect on communities. AFH employs Boston teens in paid apprenticeship in the arts, including painting, sculpture, photography, graphic design, silkscreen, and murals. www.afhboston.com.
