Join the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity on Friday, May 17 for Orange County’s biggest charity art event of the year! This 9th annual fundraiser will take place from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. at the Chuck Jones Center at SOCO + The OC Mix and will feature a silent auction with art pieces up for bid from over 100 artists from around the world. This special evening serves to raise money for programs of the Chuck Jones Center, which work to foster innovation, exercise creativity to solve problems and build mental health in students of all ages and backgrounds. The Center works with school systems without art programs, people on the autism spectrum, the elderly and other groups including corporate clients.
Notable art pieces + artists featured in the auction include Wile E. Coyote’s Big “E” Wall where guests will find a collection of art work from internationally acclaimed artists, such as Academy-Award recipient Nick Park (Wallace and Gromit), Oscar-nominated Bill Plympton (Your Face and Guard Dog), Chuck Jones protégé Jeff DeGrandis (Dora the Explorer) and an unnamed four-time Oscar-winning animation director. Additionally, several “Community Ambassadors” will be in attendance and a cash bar + free appetizers by Casa del Lago will be available for attendees.
Tickets for the Red Dot Auction are $25/person online and $50/person at the door. Each ticket provides attendees with 2 “Red Dots,” which, if used, guarantee the bidder to pay a set price for the particular work of art they bid on. A special Preview Event will be held just before the official start of the fundraiser on Friday, May 17 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. where guests have a chance to use their “Red Dots” before anyone else. Tickets for the Preview Event are $100/person and include entertainment and refreshments.
