Virtual Art of Dessert
Saturday, April 17, 2021 at 6PM
Join us ONLINE for our 18th annual Art of Dessert and support our biggest fundraiser of the year. Art of Dessert has raised more than $4.5 million over the years to help support our community’s home for the arts and helped provide enrichment in the arts to 480,000+ children.
This beloved event includes a silent auction with incredible wine options, a virtual live auction with auctioneer Greg Quiroga, and more. The evening will be hosted by Board Chair Susan Preston and friends.
The event is free to attend, with registration required. Food and dessert options will be available for purchase.
Proceeds raised through both Date Night and Art of Dessert benefit the Center’s Education and Community Engagement programs throughout the year, including new online tools and educational experiences for students, teachers, and parents, free and discounted tickets for low-income and at-risk students to educational matinees, musical instruments loaned free of charge to those who can’t afford to buy or rent them, arts-integrated classroom instruction by LBC teaching artists, and professional development courses for teachers.
Integrating the arts with classroom lessons gives students broader and deeper learning experiences—experiences that impact how children learn to think, as well as how they feel, behave and grow into accomplished adults. In short, the arts have the power to inspire and change lives and make our community a better place to live.

Featuring performances by Luther Locals Artists Faith Ako and Michelle Lambert
Ku’u ‘Āina, Aloha, “speaks to my birthplace on the windward side of O‘ahu where my 15 brothers, sisters and I were raised and where my heart is truly at peace,” said the singer. As the Bay Area’s premier female artist in Traditional/Contemporary Hawaiian music, Faith has graced the West Coast with her powerful voice, charismatic personality and passion for Hawaiian music for over two plus decades.
Rising star, Michelle Lambert, brings a world of experience when she steps up to the microphone. The Pop singer/songwriter has toured from coast to coast making waves all over the country. Michelle’s 2020 single, Girl on Fire, has caught the attention of the press and the official video is full of attitude and eye candy in this Bay Area production. Writing all her own songs and able to play any instrument you throw at her, this Berklee Grad is all about telling her story. Where she came from in Northern California and the struggles that life brings while chasing her dreams.
