The Palos Verdes Art Center is holding its 16th annual PVAC Dream House Raffle. This year’s dream prize is an Oceanfront Estate on the island of Kauai in Hawaii – or $5,000,000. Designed by internationally acclaimed architect, Gianni Francione, the Dream House melds South Pacific traditions with the best of contemporary design. The three-acre estate features a main house and pavilions with two master suites, two additional bedrooms, detached dining room, four full bathrooms, one half-bath and a four-car garage. The rooms are appointed with soaring ceilings, rich wood interiors, and block walls – surrounded by tropical gardens with an infinity pool, offering dramatic cliff-side views of the Pacific Ocean.
For the past fifteen years the Palos Verdes Art Center has given away millions in cash and prizes. The money raised continues to fund the Center’s exhibitions and educational programs. The Art Center is available for local Palos Verdes homes owners to take classes, purchase hand crafted items and visit local artist exhibitions in the galleries. 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.
The donation for a raffle ticket is still $150 and is limited to only 84,000 ticket sales. As in past raffles, there are special drawings for buyers who purchase tickets early.
