Beloved hometown artists Drea D’Nur (Spirit of Nina) and Edreys Wajed (Freedom Wall) humbly present the Not For Sale: Humanity and Arts Benefit, an evening where the arts champion a cause, challenging the community with a call-to-action, compassion and awareness for the restoration of those affected by Human Trafficking.
This one-night only event takes place December 9, 2017 at Ashker’s on Main (1526 Main Street), Buffalo, NY, from 6pm – 9pm. Limited Tickets are $30 and to be purchased at www.wajedcrafters.com with proceeds benefiting Mona’s House, A Restoration Home in WNY for Human Trafficking Victims.
Although there are several notable and favorable changes taking place in our new and better Buffalo, artists Drea and Edreys remind us all that amidst the noise of celebration, applause and clanging cranes erecting towering buildings, we cannot ignore the cries and moans of our brothers and sisters most afflicted by acts human cruelty.
After a stellar year of artistic contributions respectively between the two artists, they found it pertinent to cross paths, colliding with momentous intention to close out the year for a purpose much larger than themselves. With an epidemic so huge in looming shadow, many disconnect and feel unequipped with impotence in facing the facts of human trafficking, which is why Drea and Edreys have decided to use their platforms to speak out on this injustice in hopes that they inspire and empower the community to take notice and action.
The evening features a cocktail reception highlighting plant based appetizers made by artist/Chef Alexa Joan, live performance by Drea D’nur and live art demonstration and short-doc premiere by Edreys Wajed.
