Annual “Speakeasy’ fundraiser benefiting LPAC set June 4


The Lancaster Performing Arts Center (LPAC) Foundation will host its annual fundraiser, dubbed “The Speakeasy,” on Saturday, June 4, 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,” organizers said in a news release.

Proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit the LPAC Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides “Arts for Youth” ticket support and bus funding assistance to 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.

The LPAC Foundation Board of Directors consists of R. Steven Derryberry, president; Tim Fuller, vice president; Timothy Doerfler, treasurer; and Dr. Ric Garrison, M.D., secretary. Directors include Gretchen Anton, Mark V. Bozigian, Shawn Cabey, Jennifer Duke, Harvey Holloway, Bill Silva and Becky Smith.

Tickets  are $50 per person and may be purchased online at, at the LPAC box office, 750 W. Lancaster Blvd., by phone at (661) 723-5950, or through any of the LPACF Directors. For more information, visit or contact the LPAC Foundation office at 661-723-6096 or at
