Annual Speakeasy Fundraiser to aid Performing Arts Center


The Lancaster Performing Arts Center Foundation (LPACF) announces the return of The Speakeasy on Saturday, Jan. 29, at 8 p.m.

Step back into the 1920s for an evening filled with frivolity, fun, and flair! Kick up your heels to the boisterous on-stage antics of Grammy-nominated California Feetwarmers while trying your hand at blackjack, poker, craps, and roulette for a chance to win fabulous prizes.

The unique evening is sponsored in part by Derryberry & Associates LLP, Dr. Prithviraj Dharmaraja, M.D., Duke Engineering, H.W. Hunter Inc., and Garrison Family Medical Group. A roaring good time is sure to be had by all.

All proceeds from this fundraiser will benefit the LPAC Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization (Federal Tax ID# 95-4221909), which provides Arts for Youth ticket support and bus funding assistance to thousands of Antelope Valley students, funds outreaches and workshops on local school campuses, and awards an annual Performing Arts Scholarship in support of higher education within the arts.

Steven Derryberry, President; Tim Fuller, Vice President; Timothy Doerfler, Treasurer; Dr. Ric Garrison, M.D., Secretary; as well as directors, Gretchen Anton, Mark V. Bozigian, Shawn Cabey, Jennifer Duke, Harvey Holloway, Bill Silva, and Becky Smith.

This evening is sure to be the “bee’s knees” for those in attendance and supports a wonderful cause.
