Art-A-Fair’s first Live Art Auction attracted a standing-room-only crowd July 12. The auction consisted of a wide variety of works donated by 42 of the festival’s artists, including Sandy Clark, Paula Hinz, Jennifer Lindsey, Susan Marosz and Kyle Richter. Every medium was represented, from acrylic to mixed media, oil, photography and wood, with proceeds benefitting students at the Laguna College of Art & Design (LCAD).

The evening began with wine tasting provided by The Stash, a local company that strives to promote men’s health awareness; then, Tivoli Too sold premium wines by the glass. Art-A-Fair President Mike Cahill and LCAD President Jonathan Burke addressed the audience to start the auction. The bidding process, led by auctioneer Mark Thomas, raised more than $5,500, with the majority of funds going to LCAD’s Dennis and Leslie Power Library. (lcad.edu) —Katherine Duncan

On July 13, more than 140 participants headed to Aliso Viejo Country Club for the 15th annual Bob Margolis Memorial Golf Tournament in support of the youth programs offered year-round by the Boys & Girls Club of Laguna Beach Bluebird Branch. Attendees donned their best old school fashion in honor of this year’s theme: 1950s rock ’n’ roll.

The highlight of the day was the Chopper Ball Drop, when a helicopter flew over the course and dropped hundreds of numbered golf balls. The attendee associated with the ball that landed closest to the prized pin was awarded a golf package for four at The Resort at Pelican Hill. Following the tournament, guests sipped cocktails and enjoyed live music during a raffle and silent auction. The Laguna Hackers, a group that’s loosely centered on the real estate industry, sponsored the event, which grossed more than $40,000. (bgclagunabeach.org) —K.D.
