The Lancaster Performing Arts Center (LPAC) Foundation will host at 6 p.m. June 2 “That 70s Party,” its eighth Annual Gala and Grand Auction, at the Lancaster Performing Arts Center.

Guests will be wowed by bright lights, delectable fare, complimentary beverages and spirits, as well as freshly rolled cigars in the ever popular cigar lounge, courtesy of H.W. Hunter, Inc. Entertainment will be provided by Tape Deck Heroes, performing classic rock hits and memorable dance tracks.

The highlight of the evening will be the popular auction, featuring more than 20 remarkable packages. Packages include trips to Maui, New Orleans and Punta Cana; as well as custom furniture, priceless memorabilia, Lancaster JetHawks/Hunter Dodge Party Deck Tickets with the Edwards Federal Credit Union Suite at the Lancaster Municipal Stadium, premium advertising, and BLVD dining and entertainment, among other local goods and services.

Proceeds 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 Lancaster Performing Arts Center, as well as 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 LPAC Foundation recognizes the ongoing need to fund these experiences for students who may not otherwise be afforded exposure to live theatre. 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.

Tickets for the event are $125 per person and may be purchased online at www.LPAC.org, in person at the LPAC Box Office, 750 West Lancaster BLVD, or by phone at (661) 723-5950.
