City We Love

City We Love

This celebration will change your heart forever. We have two simple goals: first, to dignify people of our city, which includes demystifying the issues around homelessness, and second, to connect the vision of Mary’s Home with your heart so that we have an opportunity to invest together as we journey toward the common good of our city.

One way we desire to reach these goals is to partner with local and national artists who share their beautiful visual art to present the theme of the event, “City We Love”, which will include sculpture, photography, drawing, painting, music and film. If you are an artist and would like to participate, please do! Simply email Emile Ibrahim at [email protected] for more information. All art is due August 9th.

This semi-formal event takes place on Friday evening at 7pm. A silent auction will begin earlier that day and run through Saturday September 7th. Everyone who attends will get the chance to bid in the silent auction as well as vote on the artwork they desire to see become part of a permanent collection in Mary’s Home. The silent auction and Friday night event will help us raise funds for Mary’s Home. But most importantly, people in our city–everyone involved in this–will be celebrated and dignified. We can’t wait to spend this evening with you!

    I volunteer at the Cincinnati Dream Center, and I would like to come and help for a few days not only for the fund raise but just to help a little bit.

      Hi Janet. Please do visit! We would enjoy the chance to share our local Dream Centers work with you and hear about yours. Also, feel free to connect any and all interested artists with Emile Ibrahim to coordinate donations of artwork for the silent auction and event on August 30th. Best regards!

    I saw this on facebook via LinkedIn. What types of photographs are you looking to acquire for your fundraiser.
    Will photographers receive credit (as the photographer)?
    I’d like more information please.

    Thank you,

    Deborah Flowers

    Hi there, I am the YoungLives coordinator for Colorado Springs (a branch of Young Life that ministers to pregnant teens and teen mothers). I am so excited about this project and would love to learn more about what your organization does, and hopes to do! I am always looking for resources for the girls, and some of them are always on the verge of homelessness. Blessings on you and your work!
