The dress code on the invitation read “Black/Glitter/Glam,” and the 370 guests more than obliged at the Mirror Mirror gala on March 31, held in honor of the 150th anniversary of legendary retail store Gump’s. The sold-out event raised $417,000, with net proceeds earmarked for the California College of the Arts (CCA) Scholarship Fund.
Cochairs Ann Hatch, CCA trustee, and Jennifer Morla, CCA Graphic Design faculty member, couldn’t have been happier with the results. “We are so grateful to Gump’s for selecting CCA as the beneficiary for the gala. Our mutual interest in supporting artists and designers makes us ideal partners. Through the generous sponsorship of Gump’s, we will be able to help many talented and deserving students obtain a CCA education,” said Hatch.
