Todos Santos Studio Tour Wrap-up - The 6th Annual Todos Santos Studio Tour was a huge success thanks to all 35 artists who participated, and the many volunteers who helped make the event seamless. Thanks to Gianna Marino for the graphic design used on all our printed material, GotBaja for updating the map, Tecolote Bookstore, and Cafelix for assisting with ticket sales and all the volunteers who put up directional signs to the studios and helped sell tickets for this 2 day event. Each year our Tour grows and the 2015 Tour sold 387 tickets, which represents a 30% increase from last year. Ticket buyers loved that it was a 2 day event. We are proud to be able to say that 97% of the revenue from ticket sales goes to children’s art programs. This year, in addition to the Children’s Art Program at the Palapa Society, we reached out to supporting more children and art with donations to the Hogar de Ninos and the SINADES El Pescadero. The Tour continues to be a wonderful way to highlight the amazing artistic talent in Todos Santos, while at the same time helping local children from ticket proceeds. Special Thanks to Steve, Diane, Karin and Gloria. Great work! ☞ The Palapa Society Of Todos Santos, A.c., thepalapasociety [- at -], 612-133-9581
