Local coffee house to host fundraiser for future arts center
Posted on 8/21/2015 6:39:00 AM.

(Seguin) -- Chupacabra Java invites you to join them in supporting the renovation of the Klein Opera House into the Seguin Art League’s Center for the Arts.  The owners of Chupacabra Java are artists themselves and wanted to find a way to help in the renovation, and they have decided to host a benefit evening at the Aumont Hotel on Saturday, Aug. 22 from 5  to 9 p.m.
The benefit, being called Raise the Klein, will feature an evening filled with live music from local Americana “foot stomping” band Clyde, a silent auction with art from local artists, food and beverages, and raffles.
Kraig Sabatini, owner of Chupacabra Java, is looking forward to when the Center for the Arts is completed.
“Quincy (Sabatini’s wife) has been an artist her entire life and Chupacabra Java is a huge supporter of local artists.  Aside from us being members of the Seguin Art League, we truly want to see this amazing project completed so that Seguin and our neighboring cities can benefit from a unique and beautiful historic downtown building in which our community and citizens can come to see local art, take classes, join workshops, and hear live music,” said Sabatini. 
Sabatini is seeing this as the community’s opportunity to become part of the SAGA:

    Seguin Arts League
    And restoration. 
“We want artists to have a place to shine, bring in new young artists of all kinds to grow and develop their craft, and enlighten people to these beautiful pieces of art and their creators,” said Sabatini, “The renovation, revitalization, and transformation of the Klein into the Seguin Art League Gallery and Center for the Arts is going to be a huge process that, frankly, will require a lot of help. So, we are asking for the community to step into this journey with us and become a part of the SAGA.”
Tickets for Raise the Klein can be purchased at Chupacabra Java, Court Street Coffee Shop, Gift & Gourmet or at the door with a $20 donation.  For more details, visit the Facebook event, www.facebook.com/SALFundraiser.
