On August 17th, Diamond Realty hosted and sponsored a poetry reading event to raise money for the Ventura County Arts Council. Thirteen poets read original poetry, several inspired by the theme of the evening “Scuffed Diamonds.”
The event was well attended and a huge success. The amount raised exceeded expectations and was used to fund the publishing of a book containing the poems written by the poets and read at the event.
Theresa Robledo, Owner of Diamond Realty said, “It was an honor to host the Ventura County Arts Council’s poetry event. I was surprised and grateful when I read the book’s introduction containing such a beautiful tribute to my husband Henry and I. Thank you again to Fernando Albert Salinas and all the amazing talented poets who moved us with your poetry.”
To support the Ventura County Arts Council, copies of the book are available at http://www.lulu.com/shop/http://www.lulu.com/shop/fernando-albert-salinas/scuffed-diamonds/paperback/product-23823514.html
