Orphanage fundraiser Jan. 6

By Federico Martínez, Special Contributor to La Prensa

A stunning oil painting of the Lady of Guadalupe—valued at $8,000—is being raffled off to raise money to help orphaned children in Mexico.

Toledo visual artist Alberto Marin created the painting using technical oil and fine gold. The painting measures 35 inches in width and 64 inches long.

“All of the money raised will benefit a children’s orphanage in Guanajuato, Mexico,” said Mr. Marin, who previously lived in Phoenix, Arizona.

In previous years Mr. Marin has used his talent to help raise money for various charitable causes. “It's all part of a ministry of helping those in need,” he said.

Raffle tickets are being sold 3 for $5. 
A draw will be made on January 6, 2015 at the church of Saints Peter and Saint Paul in Toledo. To purchase tickets please contact Mr. Marin at (419) 206-3465. Photos courtesy of Alberto Marin.
