A poetry event to raise money for the Ventura County Arts Council was held August 17, 2018 in the Fillmore office of Diamond Realty. Approximately 15 poets read original poetry, several about the theme of the event “Scuffed Diamonds.”
The event was sponsored by Diamond Realty and hosted by Fernando Albert Salinas, Ventura County Arts Council Board Member and professor at Brooks College. Fillmore Middle School art teacher Doris Nichols painted while poetry was in motion. Contributors to the event included Vallartas Mexican Restaurant, Starbucks, Fidelity National Title, Stewart Title, First American Title, Lawyers Title & Nickelodeon. The amount raised exceeded expectations and will be used to fund the publishing of book containing a collection of student poetry.
Theresa Robledo, owner of Diamond Realty said, “It was an honor to host such a diverse group of poets from cities throughout Ventura County. Thank you to everyone who attended and donated, thank you to the businesses that contributed, and thank you to all the wonderful poets who created beautiful art from the power and beauty of spoken word.”
