IRVINE, Calif. - Corazon de Vida is pleased to announce "Hearts & Arts" a benefit for the children of Baja on Friday, December 9, 2011 from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM.  Staged at the prestigious Alexander Salazar Art Gallery in San Diego, the Hearts & Arts evening will include delicious food, tequila and wine tasting and cigar rolling exhibit.  Corazon de Vida founder Hilda Pacheco-Taylor will present an overview of the organization and their work in Baja to help orphaned and abandoned children. 

Corazon de Vida, or "Heart of Life", was founded to address child homelessness and the lack of support to orphanages in the state of Baja California, Mexico.  "CDV coordinates corporate, community and volunteer support to provide funds, volunteer help, and a caring hand to the children of Baja. Funds raised pay for food, utilities and the other basic necessities of life. We seek to end the cycle of poverty and homelessness by providing not only food and shelter, but improving quality of life and fostering education." said Pacheco-Taylor. Corazon de Vida now provides support for 16 Baja orphanages that care for more than 800 children total.

 
There will be an outstanding silent auction for everyone's enjoyment and live music performance by Manny Cepeda, bringing his collection of Salsa/Merengue music from his native Puerto Rico.  Space is limited for this special evening and tickets, priced at $30.00, are expected to sell quickly.
