The Guild will present a $500 check to Photocharity for its “Taking Music & Arts to the Streets” program. Photocharity, founded by SDAG member Jeffrey Sitcov, has helped put more than 1,800 homeless San Diego Homeless Youth in long-term safe housing for more than 12 years.

The Guild is offering 10 percent off all artwork in the Off Track Gallery all day Sunday, Feb. 8. If you purchase one of Jeffrey Sitcov’s photographs from the Off Track Gallery, 18 percent of the sale will go to Photocharity.

The Photocharity House of Hope program brings hope and opportunity for homeless youth starting with a mandatory 30-day inpatient drug/alcohol rehab, training and instruction in life skills and trades, case management, group and individual therapy, home-cooked meals, music and art classes with the goal of solving permanently their homelessness.
