(Miami)-Youth Power Movement (YPM) nonprofit organization continued its "Pull Your Pants Up" campaign together with local art curator and owner of City Loft Art, Hans-Jurgen R. Klemm. YPM continued its campaign for the youths in the community through activities that honored the efforts of artists, teachers and cultural groups working to make the arts and humanities a part of everyone's life.
Henry Petithomme, a financial advisor with the John Hancock Financial Network and President of YPM, says, "He is always looking for different ways to bring the community together in support of a great cause. With art being one of the many programs for YPM, this event offers us a chance to celebrate the often overlooked economic, educational, and civic engagement values that the arts impart in our daily lives."
The event took place on June 28th 2012 at the courtyard of the City Loft Art gallery located at 2200 Biscayne Boulevard just one block north of the Bacardi Building Landmark.
. The event included inspiring artwork such as "IMAGES OF WOMAN-LA FEMME FATALE" by Ira Tsantekidou which depicts lasting images of women in many of their different moods and Divna Pesic's "DAWN IN MIAMI" which provides her exceptional interpretation of the city with regard to art, gambling and entertainment. The event showcased luxury cars sponsored by the Miami Warren Henry collection. Our stage hosted testimonials from youths that have benefitted from YPM's initiatives and local talents who enticed the audience with music from genres of jazz, blues and more. Also included in the festivities were the accommodations of multiple chefs preparing exquisite delights, complimented by fine wine, prize raffles and an ambiance that encompasses light and color.
YPM's cause and events have reached the attention of individuals and organizations like former Miami Heat Star Tim Hardaway; Mario Murgado, President and Chief Executive Officer of Brickell Motors; philanthropist and Chairman of Kim's Good Karma Group Kimberly Shenker-Bacardi; Congresswoman Frederica Wilson, who represents the 17th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives; Donovan Campbell, sports anchor on WSVN 7 News; Trina Robinson, news anchor on NBC Miami; Vincent De Paul, actor and model; The Miami Herald.
