Our 20th Art of Dessert Returns April 15!

The Art of Dessert is LBC’s biggest fundraising event of the year. It has raised more than $5 million since we first started appealing to the sweet tooth to help support our community’s home for the arts. It has helped provide enrichment in the arts to more than 530,000 children, families, and educators.

Don’t miss this memorable evening of fine dining, including delicious food served family-style, premium bar, exceptional wines, and, of course, decadent desserts by the best bakers in the county. Bid on unique live and silent auction items and enjoy lively entertainment and engaging speakers.

Menu coming soon!
