Editor, Times-Advocate:

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 or call the ticket office Tuesday through Sun­day after noon at 800-988-4253.
