BRING YOUR MOTHER AS YOUR OTHER!

Red Dot Auction Cuts Ticket Prices for Mothers!

Costa Mesa, CA: Chuck Jones Center for Creativity announced today that they have cut ticket prices in half for their annual spring fundraiser, the Red Dot Auction, scheduled for Friday, May 11—just two days before Mother’s Day—for anyone bringing their mother, grandmothers, aunts, or mothers-to-be.  

“Chuck Jones loved his mother, Mable “Nana” Jones, dearly, and treated her royally at all times. Her nurturing guidance when he and his siblings were young, accounted for much of their genius talent—all four were master artists,” said Craig Kausen, Chuck Jones’s grandson, “And we thought it might be fun to treat mothers and their “others” who like art and want to support a good cause—the nurturing of innate creativity in school children, those on the autism spectrum, and seniors facing early onset dementia—to a discount on ticket prices.”

Tickets available for the Main Event at ChuckJonesCenter.org/RedDot. Use coupon code MOTHER (case sensitive) at checkout for half-off tickets for the Main Event. Good for any number of tickets purchased.

Red Dot Auction, now in its eighth year, is the premier art event of the season and the most fun you’ll have at a fundraiser. This year, special musical guest, singer/songwriter Johnny Irion, the great-nephew of Nobel Laureate, John Steinbeck, and husband of Sarah Lee Guthrie (Arlo’s daughter, Woody’s granddaughter), will perform from his most recent album. The silent auction is composed of original works of art from over 100 artists from around North America plus a section completely devoted to WoodSnap, a local Orange County company that prints photographs on sourced birch wood. Bidding begins at just $100.
