Isabell Rivera OW Contributor | 5/10/2019, midnight
The Lancaster Performing Arts Center (LPAC) Foundation will host “Back in the Saddle Again,” its 9th Annual Gala and Grand Auction, on Saturday, June 8 at 6 p.m. at the Lancaster Performing Arts Center.
Dust off your cowboy boots and ride over to the LPAC to join complimentary cocktails, indulge in unique ranch fair, and try some freshly rolled cigars in the H.W. Hunter, Inc. outdoor lounge, as well as rock out to the ever-popular country and classic rock tunes performed by JB and the Big Circle Riders.
The highlight of the evening will be the anticipated auction, featuring packages with trips, adventures, premium advertising, BLVD dining, and entertainment, as well as a variety of local goods and services.
Any profit from this event will benefit the LPAC Foundation, which provides support for educational programming, college scholarships, school outreaches, bus funding, and ticket scholarships for school performances at the LPAC, in addition to providing funds for enhancements to the facility.
Students throughout the Antelope Valley are impacted by the Center’s Arts for Youth program each year. With limited funding affecting so many schools, the foundation recognizes the ongoing need to fund these experience for students who may not otherwise be afforded exposure to live theater. The foundation continues to ask for the community’s assistance in fulfilling their commitment to expand arts education, as well as provide support for a venue which will serve the Antelope Valley for years to come.
Tickets for “Back in the Saddle Again,” are $125 per person, and may be purchased online at www.lpac.org, in person at the LPAC Box Office, 750 W. Lancaster Blvd., and by phone at (661) 723-5950. For more information regarding the gala, and a full list of auction items and sponsors, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (661) 723-6096.
