A Photographic Exhibition Benefitting Monarch School
Reception & Silent Auction: Saturday, December 5th, 7-11pm
Sponsored by Scion

Sometimes the best photographs come out of the least expected circumstances. Maybe the planets were aligned, maybe it was good karma, or maybe it just comes down to sheer luck. Either way, certain photos were meant to be. Subtext is proud to present Happenstance, a group photography exhibition that celebrates being in the right place at the right time.

For one night only, Subtext will host a silent auction featuring the work of over 30 regional photographers. A portion of the proceeds from the silent auction will benefit Monarch School. Founded in 1988, Monarch School is dedicated to helping San Diego’s homeless and at-risk children break the cycle of poverty through education. The school provides them with an accredited education and enrichment programs as well as providing for their basic needs such as medical and dental care, food and clothing supplements, and bus and trolley passes. Monarch serves more than 500 kids each year, ages 4–18, grades K–12. Monarch School is the only program of its kind for homeless kids in the U.S. and is a prototype for how a community can successfully educate homeless children to become productive citizens. So come out and celebrate our community, buy some great photography, and help make a big difference. Mark your calendars, we hope to see you there!
