THE ECHO SOCIETY (501(c)(3))
FIRST CHARITY DINNER & AUCTION
Saturday, September 7th 2019
5:30 - 8:30 pm
(Secret location revealed upon purchase of your ticket.)
Join us as we raise support for music and arts education in underserved schools and raise funds TO BRING 70+ musicians from The Southeast Symphony (the largest and longest running African American philharmonic in the USA) to McKinley Elementary in Compton on Nov 9, for our seventh immersive event, "FUTURE."
4 Years ago, the principle of McKinley set up a music program through ETM-LA and watched her school transform to BECOME 2nd in the region for grades and attendance. We are absolutely thrilled at the prospect of bringing such a large, diverse and distinguished orchestra to this elementary school to celebrate that transformation and to help raise funds for more schools to do the same.
The Charity Dinner will be a limited seating, 'Rustic Elegance' experience, beautiful cocktails and an art auction.
Delicious food, prepared by chef Gladys Noth of Mbombo who will be utilizing the vegetables grown in the gardens we will be dining in.
Live music, performed by members of the Southeast Symphony Orchestra as a backdrop to the evening.
Art auction, including studio time donations from Pulse, attending Hollywood film scoring sessions, and beautiful artworks that have been donated from amazing artists will be auctioned off. A silent online auction will open next week.
Speeches, from prominent officials from the city of Compton, Anthony Parnther of the Southeast Symphony Orchestra and Echo Society members.
The Echo Society is a 501(c)(3).
