Marie Dwyer BullockThe Marie Dwyer-Bullock Artists’ Scholarship Fund was established to preserve Marie’s devotion to helping members of the local community sustain themselves economically and her love of art. Come celebrate Marie’s legacy at the Fund’s first annual fundraiser on Tuesday, December 15, from 4 to 7 p.m. in Upper La Floresta, Ajijic. You’ll enjoy cocktails, appetizers and music. You can bid on that piece of Marie’s jewelry you always loved. You’ll meet the first two artists sponsored by the Fund and the two new artists who will receive scholarships. (The current artists’ paintings will be for sale.) And, you can bid on a painting that Efren Gonzales will create and auction at the event. Tickets are $250 each and are available at Diane Pearl’s and Mia’s. There are a limited number available, so don’t wait to purchase yours!
