Join Us For Spoken Word

The Artist Advocacy Foundation (AAF) will host a warm and wonderful evening and community gathering, Wednesday, Dec. 8, featuring spoken word presentations by Dan Gerber, Jerry DiPego, Ruben Lee Dalton and Ron Colone. Wine and food (from Trattoria Grappolo) will be served, as we endeavor to raise awareness and money for the good works being done through AAF.

Since Covid began, AAF has awarded necessary grants to 40 artists (musicians, painters, poets, photographers, filmmakers) as well as venues and community programs to help fuel the force of inspiration

We will start at 6 p.m. (in the back banquet room at Grappolo) with a social hour that includes pizza, meatballs, salad and Valley wines (including from Stolpman, Demetria, Attic Salt / Dafoe, Kalyra, Colpo di Fortuna, and more.)

The readings will start at 7 p.m.

Attendance is limited to 60 people and vaccinations are required.


If you would like to help an artist who inspires you, you can donate to AAF and we will get your contribution to that artist (90 percent of your donation will go directly to the artist and 10 percent will go to AAF to cover administrative cost to help us help other artists.)


If you do not have a specific artist in mind, but recognize the urgent need and would like to help, please donate now, and we will disburse your contributions to artists in need.




Thank you.
