“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.”

“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.”
