For the Love of Arts Benefit Concert, a silent auction and fundraiser put on by the Cultural Arts Society of La Verne, was held Saturday in the meeting house at the Hillcrest Retirement Community in La Verne.
More than 100 guests helped raise $3,100 for future art programs throughout the night.
Senior public relations majors Myranda Garcia and Caitlin Pallotta took it upon themselves to promote the Music and Memories program of La Verne’s Hillcrest retirement community, raising awareness and donations for patients fighting Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
Colleen Flores is making history as the La Verne Police Department’s first female chief of police. She began as an explorer at the Upland Police Department before going to the academy to become an officer.
As she finished her workout with squats, pull, clean and jerk, and snatch, Hailey McCann sat on the floor, deciding if she wanted to go to In-N-Out for a burger with animal fries or to Little Caeser’s for a deep dish pizza.
After three years of fundraising, two years of house hunting and one false start, the University of La Verne Board of Trustees funded a $2.5 million Claremont home to be regarded as the new “University house.”
