LOAC Benefit Auction
Mark your calendars for this elegant evening of cocktails, dinner, and auction. Held the second Saturday in November, this live and silent auction features work by local, national, and internationally acclaimed artists. All work and items can be previewed in the LOAC Library a month prior to the event. One hundred percent of the proceeds go towards LOAC's general operating fund.

Matching Gifts

Many companies match employee contributions to charitable organizations, thus increasing the dollar value of these donations. Please consult your company to find out if it has a matching gifts program and to receive appropriate forms.

LOAC relies on the talented and tireless efforts of its volunteers and interns. We couldn't do it without you!
LOAC classes, workshops and seminars are ever-changing and open to the public.
