Pancakes and Art With a Purpose on Santa Fe's Plaza

("Otavalo Girl" by Ariela Boronat)

Feel like being philanthropic as well as patriotic this Independence Day? If you're in the Santa Fe area on Saturday, July 4, be sure to stop by Pancakes on the Plaza, an all-breakfast, all-family, all-community, all-out July 4th benefit fiesta on Santa Fe's famed Plaza.

Co-sponsored by United Way of Santa Fe County, the Santa Fe New Mexican and Rotary Club of Santa Fe, Pancakes on the Plaza features a pancake breakfast served from 7:00 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. Throughout the day, enjoy live music and fine art created by a variety of local artisans, including Cuban-born artist Ariela Boronat. Her unique block prints and paintings reflect a lifetime of world travel and masterfully capture her subjects in a way that will get you thinking and put a smile on your face.

Proceeds from Pancakes on the Plaza will be invested in the Santa Fe Children’s Project, an innovative, comprehensive community program to improve children’s success in school and life, the New Mexican Community Fund, as well as the Rotary Club of Santa Fe Foundation. For details, including ticket information visit the United Way of Santa Fe County Web site.
