Proceeds raised through the evening’s silent, wine and live auctions benefit the Center’s arts and education programs, which include free and discounted tickets for low-income and at-risk children, subsidies for student transportation to performances, musical instruments loaned free of charge to children who cannot afford to rent or buy them, in-classroom student workshops with artists, and professional development courses for teachers.
Since its inception in 2003, The Art of Dessert has generated more than $1.8 million and helped the Center to provide the enrichment of the arts to almost 300,000 children.

With deep gratitude we honor our 2015 Arts Benefactors of the Year, Alan and Susan Seidenfeld. The Seidenfelds came to our community in 2011 and wasted no time becoming involved. Alan and Susan truly embrace the arts, as demonstrated by the many local organizations they support. Alan also serves on the Boards of Wells Fargo Center for the Arts as well as the Santa Rosa Symphony.
Wherever there’s a need, from an education program to a capital project, like the recent Bridge to the Future for which they set the spark, they’re amongst the first to step up and show their deep generosity. We salute Alan and Susan for helping us enrich, educate, and entertain the North Bay community.
We are truly blessed to have them as two of the Center’s most generous supporters and hope you will join us at The Art of Dessert to celebrate these outstanding individuals.
