We are excited to host these drivers who are bringing their rare, one-of-a-kind cars to Santa Fe. In addition, we’re happy to announce we will be supporting the Santa Fe Children’s Museum. - Jamie Way, Director of Shiprock Santa Fe gallery
Santa Fe, New Mexico (PRWEB) September 12, 2014
Shiprock Santa Fe gallery announces its sponsorship of the Santa Fe Concorso automotive event and a merchandise donation to raise funds for the Santa Fe Children’s Museum. Shiprock Santa Fe will host a breakfast event for Santa Fe Concorso drivers at the gallery, and during the function, hold a raffle for a piece of jewelry by award-winning Navajo artist Cody Sanderson. The proceeds will be donated to the Santa Fe Children’s Museum.
“We are excited to host these drivers who are bringing their rare, one-of-a-kind cars to Santa Fe,” says Jamie Way, Director of the Shiprock Santa Fe gallery, which specializes in rare Navajo textiles, jewelry, pottery and Mid-Century Modern furniture. “In addition, we’re happy to announce we will be supporting the Santa Fe Children’s Museum by donating an item by Cody Sanderson, a Navajo jeweler who has won awards for his work from the Santa Fe Indian Market.
“We are grateful to Shiprock Santa Fe gallery for this generous donation,” stated Shannon Martin Roberts, Executive Director of the Santa Fe Children’s Museum. “The proceeds from the auction will be placed in the fund supporting field trips for area students. We anticipate that the Concorso event will help draw in more visitors to Santa Fe. They have also supported the Children’s Museum in the past as well as this year. We are excited to be supported by both organizations.”
“We appreciate Shiprock Santa Fe fueling up our drivers with breakfast before they embark on their Mountain Tour, and it is great that they are fundraising for the Santa Fe Children’s Museum, which we sponsor along with other youth organizations,” says Dennis Little, President of Santa Fe Concorso.
Santa Fe Concorso, the Southwest’s premier automotive gathering, will bring legends of racing, legendary cars, and a Packard-driving 104-year-old, Margaret Dunning, to Santa Fe for several events. Shiprock Santa Fe’s Saturday, September 27 breakfast will be followed by the Mountain Tour, taking drivers down to the town of Cerrillos and back to The Club at Las Campanas for events on Sunday, September 28th. The Santa Fe Concorso organization, a non-profit, benefits youth organizations of Santa Fe and Santa Fe County; the Santa Fe Children’s Museum is also a beneficiary of their successful event.
