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 $2.2 million and helped the Center to provide the enrichment of the arts to almost 350,000 children.
