The Palos Verdes Art Center is continuing it’s annual Best House Raffle for the 12th year. This year’s dream prize is the most dramatic ever – a $1,925,000 home located in Lunada Bay and $1,000,000 cash or $2,000,000 cash (based on 40,000 ticket sales).
For the past eleven years, the Palos Verdes Art Center has given away over $12,500,000 in cash and prizes. The money is being raised to continue to fund exhibition, education and outreach programs making visual arts available, accessible and affordable. The Art Center is available for local Palos Verdes homes owners to take classes, purchase hand crafted items and visit local artists’ gallery showings. It also hosts the Art At Your Fingertips training center which provides the Palos Verdes Peninsula School District with their art programs. Art Center has also been used to teach art projects to at-risk youth and foster children.
