Wine Tasting/Art Show a smash hit

by Jason Salas

Guam - The Cars Plus showroom in Maite was abuzz with a variety of 'spirits' Thursday night, as supporters of the Edward M. Calvo Cancer Foundation gathered for the "Guam is Good Wine-Tasting and Art Show". The event, the first of its kind, also raised funds by way of a silent auction featuring original works from local celebrities, giving their interpretations of the phrase "Guam is Good", the foundation's motto.

KUAM news director Sabrina Salas Matanane and Chris "Malafunkshun" Barnett from i94-FM participated with original contributions on canvas, alongside works from Patchwork Industries' Dee Cruz, Ray Gibson from K57, Donna Ysrael-Baker of Tanota Partners, Lieutenant Governor Ray Tenorio, and professional artists Rick Pa and Jamil Justice.

The works were coupled with a rich tapestry of food and wines, all set against the ambiance of smooth, live jazz. The money generated from last night's event will go directly to help local cancer patients and their families as they battle the disease.
