Ed Reyes, the former City Councilmember who brought expertise in city planning and a passion for community service to 24-years in City Hall posts, will be the 2016 Lummis Day “Noisemaker Award” honoree. The award will be presented at the Lummis Day Community Foundation’s annual fundraiser dinner at the Highland Park Ebell Club.
The fundraiser will feature a buffet dinner provided by many of Northeast L.A.’s favorite restaurants, beer, wine and soft drinks. A silent auction will offer the chance to bid on art, books, vintage wines and rare collectibles at bargain prices. Event tickets are $45 and are available at Galco’s Old World Grocery and at Las Cazuelas in Highland Park and at the Lummis Day website (www.LummisDay.org ). Tables of ten may be purchased for $400.
Dinner, beer, wine and soft drinks are included with admission. All proceeds from the event support the Lummis Day Festival, the only arts festival that represents all of Northeast L.A. This year's Lummis Day festival will be held June 3, 4 and 5 at five locations: Occidental College, Avenue 50 & York, the Southwest Museum, Sycamore Grove Park and the Audubon Center at Debs Park. The festival will feature music, art, dance, film, poetry and natural history. Admission to all festival events is free.
The “Noisemaker Award,” named for the “Noises,”the famous entertainments hosted by Charles Lummis for writers, artists and dignitaries at his Northeast L.A. home, is presented to a person whose work and contributions to the community are consistent with the mission of the Lummis Day Community Foundation, ‘to celebrate the arts, history and ethnic diversity of Northeast Los Angeles through educational and cultural events and to promote cooperation among people of all ages and backgrounds.'
The Lummis Day Community Foundation is a California non-profit 501 (c) 3 corporation. Ticket purchases are tax deductible to the extent provided by federal law.
