Lux After Dark fundraiser scheduled for Sept. 26

Lux Art Institute will host an evening under the stars with its fifth annual fundraising gala, Lux After Dark, at 6 p.m. Sept. 26 at a private Rancho Santa Fe estate. All proceeds will benefit the institute’s programming, including the Lux artists in residence and the Valise Project, bringing art into the classroom.

Elizabeth Turk, Lux’s soon-to-be resident artist, as well as gala honoree San Diego County Supervisor Pam Slater-Price, will join guests for festivities that will include cocktails accompanied by a string quartet; a gourmet, al fresco dinner catered by Southern California’s premier “green” caterer, ChileCo; and dancing at the Lux After After Dark party with San Diego musician Morgan Young.

The evening also will feature live and silent auctions with opportunities to bid on one-of-a-kind items, such as exclusive stays at magnificent homes around the globe and the chance to sponsor Lux’s education programs for school-age children.

Tickets are $250 per person, $2,500 for a table of 10, and sponsored tables start at $5,000. Dress is black tie optional, but should be “fabulous and festive” for an open-air celebration.

To buy tickets, inquire about sponsorship opportunities or for further details, contact the Lux office at (760) 436-6611 or e-mail Paige Rogowski at
