    Laguna Beach, CA: The Drake, Laguna Beach’s landmark restaurant and live music venue founded by Alec Glasser, will host an experiential fundraising evening unlike any other in Orange County on Tuesday, June 6th 2023. Designed to tantalize the palate and enliven the senses with sensational tunes, the evening will feature a three course meal curated by The Drake, complete with wine pairings, plus entertainment provided by Cueva Entertainment. The bordeaux and gold themed evening, produced by Elite OC Productions, will fuse together community leaders and difference makers who are committed to making an impact locally. Immersive fundraising opportunities will be available alongside a silent auction and live auction led by auctioneer extraordinaire Zack Krone.
    The experience will offer valuable sponsorship opportunities that include VIP perks from table side butler service to promotional exposure.

    The Drake Gives launched in 2021, and remains steadfast in its mission to connect, inspire and provide underserved youth with music education, materials and instruments. To date, The Drake Gives has raised nearly half a million dollars to support Save The Music Foundation which has funded public music education in the Anaheim School District. Anaheim Elementary School District Superintendent Dr. Christopher Downing was recently recognized as the 2023 recipient of the Save the Music Foundation’s 18th annual Administrator Award for Distinguished Support of Music Education. The longtime educator was presented with the honor in Texas at the National Conference on Education, hosted by the AASA, the School Superintendents Association. Additional details can be found HERE.

Music moves us around the globe, and our efforts will allow the future of music to thrive for many generations to come.” –Alec Glasser, Founder, The Drake and The Drake Gives
