Lights, Camera, Auction! set for June 6

Kenwood School District’s biggest fundraiser, Lights, Camera Auction!, is just around the corner. Now in its 13th year, this year’s event promises some never before seen excitement.

June 6 is the date and Imagery Estate Winery is the site, with the theme this year being “Lady Luck Smiles on Kenwood.”

You can kick off the evening by attending the pre-event reception at 4 p.m. with Wes Wilson, the iconic designer of concert posters in the 1960’s, as well as the grandfather of two Kenwood School students. Wilson donated his artistic talent by designing the official Lights, Camera, Auction! poster, the original of which will be sold during the evening’s live auction. Collectible signed prints will also be for sale.

At 5:30 p.m., Lights, Camera, Auction! (LCA) starts to heat up on the beautiful grounds of Imagery Estate Winery in Glen Ellen with a Las Vegas vibe – fine dining, delicious wines and microbrews, casino games, music and dancing, awesome raffles, and an unforgettable silent and live auction. Hors d’oeuvres and desserts will be provided by Piper-Johnson catering.

You can participate in this year’s raffle for only $25 a ticket (or 5 for $100). You’ll have a chance to pick one of four trips – Monterey vacation, Orange County golf and Disney trip, Mendocino Coast getaway, or an Adventure Travel trip.

Besides the Wes Wilson artwork, live auction items include a vertical of wine from Peter Michael’s Les Pavots vineyard, 1994-99 vintages; an outdoor Catalina Patio Furniture set; a hot red Valari motor scooter; 18-inch freshwater pearl necklace; eight magnums of Cult Pinot Noir; Hotel Healdsburg getaway; a Caesar’s Palace Las Vegas trip; and more.

The silent auction offers an incredible array of items, and guarantees that there will be something for everyone. These include the ever popular Premier Events, where you can sign up for the 8th annual horseshoe tournament and BBQ at the Maple Ring; a luxurious women’s art, food and massage party; a make-your-own apple juice party; and that annual British culinary experience, the Breakfast of Champions! That’s just a few, so analyze your LCA catalogue closely. You can now view the catalogue online at

All the net proceeds go toward important programs at Kenwood School – music, art, P.E., technology, library, and classroom aides.

LCA is a labor of love by the Kenwood Education Foundation, Kenwood School parents, and members of the community. It is an unforgettable event, a chance to spend an evening with your friends and support a wonderful cause – the education of the boys and girls at Kenwood School.

You can make your LCA reservations and buy raffle tickets by going to LCA tickets are $100 apiece. The cost of attending the Wes Wilson reception and the main LCA event is $225 (includes two drink tickets and Wes Wilson’s LCA poster.)
