"Memories from the Past" The David Adler Music and Arts Center's Annual Fundraiser

On Saturday May 17th The David Adler Music and Arts Center will host its annual fundraising event featuring a silent auction, a celebrity cooking demonstration and local music performances. The benefit proceeds with fund art and music scholarships for students and will also help with upkeep of the Adler estate, a premier architectural landmark in Lake County. The event features a silent art auction that will showcase works from local and regional artists.    Renowned Chef Jay Lovell, of Lovell’s of Lake Forest will provide a cooking demonstration and prepare appetizers for the event while guests will be entertained by the music of the Adler faculty and students.

“I have exhibited my work at the Adler Center,” said local artist Jeanne Sapienza-Prinz, “my children take classes there, we just adore the center. I am happy to donate some of my work to their auction; they are very supportive of the arts and the artistic community.”

The event will be held at The David Adler Music and Arts Center from 6:00p.m. -  10:00 p.m. on Saturday May 17th and is open to the general public.  Tickets are available for $75.00 per person and can be purchased by contacting the Adler office at 847-367-0707. For more information, you can also visit the website at www.adlercenter.org.  Admission includes access to the auction, live entertainment, beer by Tighthead brewery, wine, and food from Lovell’s, Sunset and Shakou Sushi.

“We host this event almost every year but this is our first fundraising event located at the Center,” said Amy Williams, Executive Director for the Center.  “We are so thrilled for everyone to see this amazing place that many people drive by daily but are unaware of. We plan on using this event to provide scholarship and outreach programs and opportunities for our music and art classes as well as raise awareness and preserve the David Adler legacy.”

This is something that the community should rally around! I believe there are already plans in place to improve the facility if the money is there. The Adler is a good facility that can become the cultural focus point for the village, as opposed to the failed Brainerd concept.
