YLS Participates in KCOS Art Auction for GYSD

Surely we can all remember a time when one of our most beloved after school activities was watching Bill Nye the Science Guy, Reading Rainbow or Wishbone. If you share one of these memories, then you too have been touched by KCOS who relies on community funding to maintain its initiatives and programming.

In an effort to support United Way’s world wide event “Global Youth Service Day”, YLS volunteered in KCOS TV’s Live Art Auction on Sunday, April 28. Volunteers who were featured during the live segment were answering phones and maintaining the bid board as dozens of local area residents placed their bids.

“I enjoyed volunteering because it helped me establish new friendships and relationships with other volunteers from the community”, said YLS Board Member Crystal Montoya. “El Paso has great talent and I really enjoyed being in the middle of the excitement as bids were placed from anxious buyers”.

Pieces that were featured at this event were donated by local artists from around El Paso and its surrounding area including Rudy Montoya, Efrin Romero and Tom Lea.
