I serve as a volunteer on the Board of Trustees at the California Center for the Arts. I am enjoying my involvement, and I am excited about the activities occurring there. The work being done to bring arts education to hundreds, even thousands of students, teacher education, community events, and outstanding performing arts shows and museum exhibitions is remarkable and valuable.
I am writing to ask your help. The Center is bringing back the FUN in Fundraising by holding our fundraising gala on Saturday, April 2nd. It is entitled “Dancing with Our Stars.” Nine local celebrities are volunteering their time to partner up with professional dancers for dance instruction. These nine couples will have a friendly competition in the beautiful concert hall at the Center. Prior to the competition there will be a VIP dinner in the Lyric Court, with great food and entertainment as well as a silent auction with fabulous opportunities. I am hoping you will consider attending the VIP Dinner or perhaps just attend the 7:30 pm dance competition portion with a regular ticket purchase. VIP Tickets are on sale now for $175. These tickets should be purchased before March 5. The regular tickets are priced $27-$55, and that price includes admission to a dance party for everyone after the show.
It is going to be a great time! Please consider calling some friends and attend together as a group. They can go to art center.org or call the ticket office Tuesday through Sunday after noon at 800-988-4253.
