Second Annual Eliot Arts Magnet Academy Auction
Eliot Arts Magnet Academy will host their second annual auction at the Altadena Town & Country Club on November 2 from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. This auction is a fundraiser for the Eliot Arts Annual Fund. Tickets are $40 and include appetizers, wine and beer. The Eliot Arts Annual Fund Chairperson Jennifer Hall Lee said “We are excited to be at the Altadena Town & Country Club for a second time. The auction is the school’s biggest fundraiser for the annual fund.”
Principal Lori Touloumian said of the annual fund “Last year we were fortunate to raise $50,000.00 securing our artist residencies and arts resources.This year our goal is $75,000.00, which includes funding for a new innovation “Fab Lab”, where students will learn Laser and Vinyl cutting, Woodworking, Electronic Circuit-making and more. This expansion will weave in a STEM component to our arts integration program, broadening the unique experience we offer at Eliot Arts.”
The live auction portion of the event includes Lunch with LA County Supervisor Kathryn Barger, Lunch with State Senator Anthony Portantino and Lunch with Altadena Sheriff’s Captain Marjory Jacobs, Altadena’s new captain. In the silent auction there are many items including, fine art from Open Studios Artists (Eliot is in the Open Studios tour), merchant gift baskets, museum and sports tickets, spas, classes, and Rose Parade tickets. There are unique items such as a fresh eggscription and a Lebanese cooking class with our own theater director and English teacher Micol Issa! We also have a trip to San Francisco and a Joshua Tree weekend getaway. A private tour of The Hettema Group is also included in its wide offerings.
