Experience this one-of-a-kind opportunity to own works of art by renowned New Mexico artists, including RC Gorman, JD Challenger, Frank Howell, John Nieto, Malcom Furlow, Charles Collins, Robert Redbird, and Farrell Cockrum while benefitting El Ranchito de los Ninos.
Richard & Janine Holcomb have been collecting fine art since 2003, primarily Native American originals, serigraphs, lithographs and giclées as well as Native American pottery. As supporters of El Ranchito de los Ninos since 2004, Richard and Janine wanted to put their vast art collection “to work” by donating 100% of all net profits to El Ranchito.
Located in Los Lunas, New Mexico, El Ranchito de los Ninos is a non-profit children’s home dedicated to keeping siblings together long term or permanently. The children who live at El Ranchito have been separated from their families as a result of such issues as physical or sexual abuse, drug use, incarceration and abandonment. The home serves as an alternative to the foster care system, which often separates siblings, providing a loving, caring environment in which children grow, learn and excel physically, mentally, socially and emotionally.
El Ranchito and the Holcombs are most grateful to Dr. White and Vessel Health for hosting this event. Vessel Health is focused on treating the entire cardiovascular system, the vessels of which carry the very life-force of our being to every part of our body – the “vessel” that each of us needs to live, love, and pursue happiness each day.

Halloween is such as special time for kids. Most might think that its just a day for candy, but if you take the time to really explore all that happens on this one day, it is quite enchanting (probably not the first word that comes to mind for Halloween!).
Each year, we prepare for trick or treaters by purchasing candy, goodies or snacks for the lucky kids that knock on our doors. But trick or treating is so much more than just the kindness of sharing. The tradition of trick or treating is more about a community coming together and opening their doors to everyone. This tradition helps teach kids about giving, kindness and belonging. For a moment in time there is pure generosity and gratitude shared between the two parties. There is nothing more pure that we could teach our kids.
Halloween is also a magical day that gives the opportunity to be anyone! Kids can be a super hero, a princess, a ballerina, a rock star, a knight in shining armor or even a giant dinosaur. Halloween is transformational for our kids as we have many volunteers to jump in to help carve pumpkins, hang spooky decorations and bake delicious cookies with the kids. This day also provides an escape for our kids, putting on a mask allowing them to put the past behind them.
It’s important that we help them overcome their past on Halloween by dressing up as the superhero of their own life, but also help them become the champion of their future each and every day.
Halloween is so much more than candy and costumes. It is truly enchanting all that this night has to offer.
Please take some time to watch our videos to learn more about what we are doing.
