Ann McEntee and the Friends of Human Relations were joined by supporters on April 21, 2017 at our sixth annual Jim McEntee Scholarship Fundraiser and Celebration. Special guest speakers included Father Jon Pedigo, Chair, Interfaith Council on Economics and Justice and Assemblymember Ash Kaira, District 27. Guests enjoyed appetizers and desserts provided by Casa Vicky, music by Brian Ho, well known jazz organist in the Bay Area, and a preview of the very best of contemporary Latino art from MACLA’s 19th Annual Auction on display in the gallery.
