Arts for the Cause is an annual fundraising event hosted by the Emerging Artists Alliance of Monterey. Each year local artists and organizations donate their work to be raffled off for a chosen cause.


Founded in 2016, the First Annual Arts for the Cause benefited relief efforts for the Sobranes Fire in Carmel Valley and Big Sur. In 2017 all proceeds went to the Monterey County Rape Crisis Center.

This past year we were excited to announce that all proceeds from the raffle went to Community Homeless Solutions. Thank you to our 2019 sponsors - Folktale Winery, The Stationaery, Dawn's Dream Winery and Galante Vineyards.

A special thank you to all of our 2019 artists and volunteers:
