MOCAH’s Art Angels Program was recently honored as one of The Bayou City Arts Festival’s top volunteer supporters! Nestled in Houston’s treasured Memorial Park, the festival was hosted during the week of March 23 – 25, 2012 where MOCAH gathered the support of more than 200 dedicated volunteers to assist in making a family fun filled weekend full of arts and crafts activity in the ‘Creative Zone’
Every year BCAF partnered with 14 of local Houston organizations local nonprofits who passionately serve the City of Houston. Perhaps the most important aspect of these partnerships is volunteer recruitment. The BCAF rely on our Non-Profit Partners for the volunteer support that make the festivals run smoothly for more than 2500 of visitors in attendance. Each of our Nonprofit Partners recruits their own group of volunteers to serve at each of the Bayou City Art Festivals, in Memorial Park and Downtown Houston. Based on their volunteer participation, each nonprofit partner receives a portion of the proceeds obtained from the festival weekend. Not only are volunteers lending a hand for the Festival, but they are also supporting other nonprofits in the area.
All proceeds from the Bayou City Art Festivals are donated to our Non-Profit Partners for use in our community. To date, the Art Colony Association has donated more than $2.6 million to local Houston organizations. You can view a list of our Non-Profit Partners for the 2012 Festivals and a brief description of their services and find out more about how YOU can get involved in making BCAF one of the TOP Festivals in the nation!
