Arnerich Massena staff and guests recently attended the Caldera Arts annual auction and dinner, Stories of Change. “You’re invited to see what happens AFTER,” promised the event’s tagline: at the dinner, we heard firsthand how Caldera has affected the lives of children through its innovative art and environmental programs. I was moved by the stories we listened to from past and current students and extremely proud that Arnerich Massena was a Blue Lake sponsor of this event. The auction appeared to be a very successful fundraiser, with donors happy to contribute to Caldera’s mission, especially after hearing directly from the students. See below for a couple of photos of the event.
Caldera is a non-profit organization working year-round to provide art instruction and experience to underserved youth in middle and high schools in Oregon. Their programs include in-school residences, summer camps, mentorship programs, weekend intensives, and even scholarship opportunities. We are pleased to support Caldera’s mission.
