Light Up the Night Honoring Paulette Lynch!

We invite you to become a part of a tribute to a unique arts administrator and advocate, Paulette Lynch, for her service to the Monterey County community she has known and loved for the past 30 years. Our honoree is celebrated as an arts leader who has given incredible service to her community, and the many hundreds of people and scores of associations, agencies, foundations and arts groups of Monterey County she has helped to organize, fund and run!

The celebration takes place at Sunset Center, Carmel, on Sunday, October 6th, from 5 to 8 p.m. in the lobby and the theater.

The event begins with a sumptuous banquet of hors d’oeuvres and cocktails, wines and sweets with time to mingle with Paulette! Enjoy a silent auction consisting of scores of intriguing items—travel getaways, local services, dinners and comestibles, and several live auction items. A special entertainment program awaits in the Sunset Center theater—musical groups, speakers, live auction items and recognition of our honoree for her years of service to the community, the hundreds of people and the many associations, agencies, foundations and arts groups of Monterey County she helped organize, fund, nurture, launch!
