Sunday Brunch for Arts Education

Arts Alive hosted our first mixer on Sunday, April 8 in the form of a Sunday brunch.  The sun was shining on the “hacienda”, home of current Board Chairperson, Joe Castro.  The Board of Directors hosted over 35 guests – including friends, family and alumni of the 18-year old nonprofit.

A traditional Hawaiian dance presented by Miss Toni Pasion welcomed guests as they arrived.  Board members welcomed friends to partake in a warm meal of food varying from authentic chile relleno to a delightful spread of breakfast breads.

The morning went on to welcome two Arts Alive teaching artists and professional musicians, Corey Watkins and Desiree Glover who warmed the crowd with jazz favorites.  Sponsor, the Wallis Annenberg and Porta Via Beverly Hills raffle was awarded to longtime friend of Arts Alive and the event slowly came to a close with gracious news about Arts Alive’s achievements and goals and a special performance from the adorable duo of Jake Spear and wife/Arts Alive board member, Jenna Spear.

Guests are asked to complete a survey of the event here.
