LA25 art auction exceeds goals for 2012

November 19, 2013

It's official, Art90266 officially raised more than twenty two thousand dollars for arts and education in the South Bay in 2012. Thanks to the efforts of our LA25 members, The Redondo Beach Education Foundation, local artists and our corporate sponsors, we we're able to send every 2nd and 3rd grader, approximately 1,400 children, to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

We believe deeply that giving children an opportunity to experience art and discover their own “artist within” will enhance their skills and their ability to think critically, as well as give them a healthier sense of self. The arts are a window to the sacred and a vehicle for intelligence of all kinds. Our children deserve as rich an exposure to the arts as we can provide.

We want to extend a special thanks to the artists who have donated their time and talent - Al Satterwhite, Bo Bridges, Anthony Friedkin, Alex Weinstein, Tm Gratkowski, Robert Waxman, Robert Ketchum, Brian Kingston, Tricia Strikfaden, Lucian Capellaro, Joseph Chiang, Patrick Killen and Julie Tamaschiro’s 3rd grade art class at Tulita Elementary. Without your dedication to your talents and remarkable willingness to share your gifts this event would not be possible. Thank you.

To our sponsors and the many people responsible for creating this event, especially Paolucci Communication Arts, with particular thanks to Christopher Salling, John Capellaro, Mike Hoye Public Relations, Shade Hotel, Vox DJ’s, Hollywood Shorts, Bank of Manhattan, South Bay Magazine and all the members of LA25.

Thank you for making a very real difference in the lives of our children.
