The Annual Gala is ASF’s signature fundraising event, building on the tremendous success of The Big Splash, which helped raise the money to start ASF and continued as an annual event until 2009.
On Saturday, September 28, ASF’s Annual Gala – Splash Back to Laguna Beach returns to the traditional home of our annual Splash spectaculars, the grounds of the Festival of Arts in Laguna Beach. Don’t jump to any conclusions, though. This is not a Splash. The organization committee promises all the fun “minus the water.”
Patrons of ASF’s Annual Gala will enjoy all they’ve come to expect from this signature fund raising event.
The night will begin with a cocktail hour featuring wines and exclusive mixed drinks. Guests can enjoy mingling with friends old and new as they enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres in the pleasant atmosphere of the Festival grounds.
Returning this year will be the ever-popular silent auction. Bid on a bevy of beautiful items. Whether they are items to liven up your home décor, bottles of the best wines to liven your dinner parties, or gift baskets filled with certificates for experiences that will liven your life, there’s sure to be something for everyone’s taste and pocketbook!
The evening will continue as guests enter our beautifully-appointed, open-air dining area and sit to enjoy a deliciously decadent feast served under the stars.
And don’t forget the live auction! There will definitely be some items worthy of your winning bid!
The entertainment is up next in the program and you won’t want to miss it! Mr. Leslie Jordan, star of stage, screen, and television returns to the Festival grounds to offer up his wit and humor for your enjoyment. He “hit it out of the park” the last time he joined us and he’s certain to do so again!
And, of course, the evening will end with some time to take to the dance floor to show off your latest moves to all your favorite music.
