Over $27,000 raised at the Art and Culture Center/Hollywood Tenth Annual Hot Hollywood Glam fundraiser

Hollywood, FL (February 1, 2018) – The Art and Culture Center/Hollywood hosted more than 200 attendees at its galleries during the 10th anniversary of Hot Hollywood Glam: Hooray for Hollywood. The fundraiser, held on Saturday, Jan. 20, 2018, netted over $27,000 for the Center’s arts program.

“Hooray for Hollywood” celebrated Hollywood’s Golden Era of Film and transformed the Center’s contemporary art galleries into a festive lounge. The annual event, complete with a red-carpet entrance, featured inspired Hollywood decor, music, a special performance by vocalist Maria De Crescenzo and a performance by VK Dance. Guests were also able to bid on great prizes such as hotel stays, restaurant certificates, and more in our silent auction.

This year’s fundraiser honored Ken Brown and Elizabeth Sanjuan, Hollywood residents and owners of Gallery 2014 in Downtown Hollywood, for their contributions to our community. Brown and Sanjuan are active in a number of charitable organizations and have donated more than $2 million to South Florida non-profits since 2005. Their passions include supporting the arts through their Hollywood Arts Foundation, Inc., and bringing clean water, education and health services to poor communities in Latin America and the Caribbean.
