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 almost $1,000,000 and helped the Center to provide the enrichment of the arts to more than 200,000 children.

Saturday, April 12 for the 2014 Art of Dessert!
With deep gratitude we honor our 2014 Arts Benefactor of the Year, the Ernest L. and Ruth W. Finley Foundation. The Foundation’s directors have been consistently supportive and deeply generous since the Center’s inception. Their most recent grant was the lead gift in our summer 2013 renovation of the Ruth Finley Person Theater, kicking off Phase I of the Bridge to the Future project. We salute the Foundation’s impact on the Center’s work, helping us to enrich, educate, and entertain the North Bay community.
