Toma Mi Corazón XXII
Our 22nd anniversary celebration!
Held on Saturday, February 8.
For twenty two years, La Peña has invited everyone to “Take My Heart.” Dozens of wooden hearts are given out and decorated by artists, dignitaries, children, and anyone else who would like to participate.
Once decorated, these hearts are sold in a silent auction. The proceeds from this event go to support La Peña's visual arts programs and their work with children in elementary schools.
The festivities began at 2 pm with a preview party, followed by the silent auction at 6 pm.
This year, there was a wonderful spring fashion showing by Austin designer, Csilla Somogyi.
A very lively set of music was provided by Sister Sister.
Delicious food and refreshments were by El Sol y La Luna.
