More than 100 original masks, created by several artists and other renowned personalities from Peru’s cultural, political, social and sports scenes, will be auctioned this September 22nd, so that more children with life-threatening diseases can realize their most wanted wishes and regain hope, strength and joy, according to Aida Vurnbrand, president of Peru’s Chapter of Make-A-Wish Make Foundation.

These extraordinary objects will be sold in an original “Silent Auction,” that will be held at Corriente Alterna Visual Arts School.

Some of the Peruvian artists that are collaborating with this noble cause are Fernando de Zsyszlo, Jose Tola, Venancio Shinki, Rafael García Miró, Jaime Higa, Denisse Mulánovich, and Carlos Revilla, among others.

The Silent Auction will take place on September 22nd, at 7pm.
