Screen Shot 2015-05-05 at 3.22.44 PM This year’s LiveART was the best EVER. I know for a fact that we could never have pulled it off without every one of you. Truly. You were hugely generous with your time, talents, donations - and all in the name of YAC. So here comes an epic thank you from a couple of deeply appreciative founders. Visual artists, you created gorgeous work right in front of our eyes, all night long. What a performance! HUGE thanks to Will Bullas, Pamela Carroll, Steven Whyte , Gustavo Torres, Christine Crozier, Robin Winfield, Edward Eyth, Jennifer Anderson, Ray Magsalay, Mary Liz Houseman, Nina Parris, Andrew Jackson, Germain Hatcher, Steven Russell, Jamie Dagdigian, Chloe Wilson, Logan Parsons, Elisabeth Donley, Cody Moore, and Lauren Ryan. Musicians, you were brilliant at LiveART. Attendees said this LiveART’s music was the best. And we completely agree. Thank you Carolyn Sills Trio, Jordan Smart, Casey Frazier, The Pip Squeeks, Juan Sanchez, Monterey Jazz Festival Quintet… and Keith Damron (for not only performing his awesome music, but producing the musical half of LiveART. He is one of YAC’s illustrious alumni). Big shout out to the following most generous and enthusiastic volunteers (parents, friends, board members, and alumni) who helped us put on this awesome party - Jim Dultz, Bryce Elischer, Patricia Giffen Peggy Alonas, Nick Biddle, Jenny Chambliss, Lupe Dosada, Susan Galvin, Walt Gibeau, David Gonzales, Brian Johnson, Jesse Juarez, Kelsey Posey, Mattias Lanas, Elisabeth Landt, Melissa Logies, Eugene Loh, Susan McKendry, Susan Morgan, Janet and Rich Myer, Marcos Poehner, Kirk Probasco, Emily Southard, and Kim Stemler. Huge thanks to Monterey Wine Country - who so graciously donated all the wine, and Kara's Cupcakes - for that fantastic spread of cupcakes! And finally, without our wonderful and brilliant staff, we could not have done ANY of this. It’s a huge event and an incredible team – Andrew Jackson, Germain Hatcher, Cortina Whitmore, and Chloe Wilson……you guys ROCK. (Hanni rocks too, but she was busy having a baby this time.) Thank you all for an outstanding LiveART. See you again next year!!   With love and deep appreciation, - Meg and Marcia
