The Bacardi-sponsored "Action through Auction" brought Raíces more than $3,000. Among the donated items sold in the silent auction were six "CAMBIO" paintings by artist Carlos Navarro.
Among those in attendance were musician Arturo Sandoval, restaurateur Felipe Valls, and City of Miami District 3 Commissioner Joe Sánchez.
The fundraiser was a great success and an indication that the GenerAcción: Generation in Action conference in April will be a great event.
