On May 5th, artworxLA 24th Annual Gala and Auction brought together a wonderful group of individuals to Taglyan Complex to help raise funds for the organization. ArtworxLA is a non-profit organization combating the high school dropout crisis by creatively engaging alternative education to high school students. The evening was a true success, having raised over $260,000 to support the various artworxLA programs. This spectacular event was led by Gala MC and artworxLA Alumni Vincent Avila, who helped us honor LA County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl, CEO of HelloGiggles Sophia Rossi, and Architect and artworxLA Board Member Grant Kirkpatrick.
The gala honored Grant C. Kirkpatrick, President of KAA Design, for his longtime commitment to the arts, arts education, and to artworxLA as Board Member. The evening also honored Sheila Kuehl, Los Angeles County Supervisor District 3, for her leadership in promoting the arts and arts education in Los Angeles. In addition, Sophia Rivka Rossi, Chief Executive Officer of HelloGiggles was honored for her commitment to empowering young women and supporting creativity and entrepreneurship of young artists.
“Our students are at a high risk of dropping out of school. Our arts program re-engages them to be curious, to love learning, to see an inspiring future,” said Cynthia Campoy Brophy, Founder and Executive Director of artworxLA.
