Fundraiser Oct. 19 at Pandora’s Pizza benefits artists who lost artwork in recent Leucadia fire
The community is invited to the TheCaliLife Gallery & Photography Studio Fundraiser Saturday, Oct. 19 at Pandora’s Pizza in Leucadia from 4 p.m. to 8 p,m. Proceeds will help fund reimbursement to the talented artists who lost their beautiful artwork in the fire that tore through CaliLife Gallery in Leucadia Monday, Sept. 30 at the corner of North Coast Highway 101 and Daphne Street. This is a free, family- friendly event. Proceeds will be derived from a percentage of food and beverage sales and donations from raffle tickets and silent auction items.
TheCaliLife Gallery & Photography Studio exhibited the work of six artists including the work of the studio’s owner Greg Cali. Unfortunately, the insurance will not cover nearly enough of the cost of the art that was destroyed. The close-knit community of Leucadia is coming together to support this event, and Pandora’s Pizza is pleased to host it. Pandora’s co-owner Craig Leslie said, “We are making our space available for the event, donating a gift card for the raffle, and donating a portion of the proceeds to CaliLife to help rebuild the art community.”
Grateful to Pandora’s Pizza, Cali is committed to supporting his gallery artists. He has a strong passion for art, photography and the community, and is determined to compensate the artists and rebuild the gallery. Cali commented, “This was a dream of mine that I accomplished and no fire is going to stop me from achieving that goal once again.”
There will be a variety of raffle items from local businesses including Philz Coffee, Leucadia Art Gallery, Le Papagayo, Beachside Bar & Grill, GOODonya, Soltera Winery, Panera, Priority Public House, Ultrazone, Pandora’s Pizza and more. TheCaliLife Gallery & Photography Studio will raffle off headshots and family photo sessions. Silent auction items include artwork from some of the gallery artists and Cali.
Pandora’s Pizza offers both traditional and unique pizzas, salads and paninis along with a top-notch wine list and rotating taps from local breweries. Pandora’s is located at 828 North Coast Highway 101, Suite G.
