Listing as of March 19, 2021

We’ve made it through 2020, a roller coaster of a year that hasn’t been easy for anyone. Looking down the road and knowing that vaccines are being given, I think we all need and deserve some down home good-ole-fashion fun!

I would like to invite you to get a little country with a whole lot of bling at La Jolla Music Society’s Bluegrass & Bling Gala on Saturday, May 22, 2021.

The gorgeous Hoehn Porsche Carlsbad* will set the spectacular backdrop for the stellar dinner and flowing Americana inspired cocktails, a brief live auction, and the featured performance by GRAMMY® Award-winning bluegrass sensations the Steep Canyon Rangers. This night will be sure to lift your spirits and get your boots stomping!

This event is an opportunity to support La Jolla Music Society’s education and artistic programs. The COVID-19 pandemic has been devastating to many especially the performing arts. We hope you agree and help by attending and/or sponsoring this gala. Since 1968, La Jolla Music Society has been serving the community with world-class music and dance performances, education programs in classrooms, and a free after-school music instruction program.

Please review the different levels of sponsorship and ways you too can participate. Enjoy bringing friends by sponsoring a table or underwrite a portion of the evening to show support for La Jolla Music Society by bringing this spectacular live music to our community.

We look forward to safely welcoming you to our Bluegrass & Bling Gala on May 22, 2021! Please contact Nicole Slavik at 858.459.3724, ext. 206 or NSlavik@LJMS.org for any questions. To download the gala package please click here.

Your support of the arts is greatly appreciated.

Warm regards,

Sheryl Scarano
