Dogs rescued from starvation receive new lives, loving home Imagine living in dirty conditions in South Central LA, wondering when your next meal would come while you and your sibling slowly wither away from starvation. That’s what happened to two dogs recently rescued by the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center. Popeye and Sweetpea are Boxer/American Bulldog mixes who were seized by LA Animal Control because their owner kept them in horrifying conditions. When they arrived at the South Central Animal Shelter, Sweetpea weighed only 37 pounds and her brother, Popeye, only 44, which is half of what they should weigh. Who knows how long these gentle dogs endured such malice and how they survived. Their owner was charged with cruelty to animals, but the poor dogs had nowhere to go. The sweet siblings quickly became favorites of the LA shelter staff, which put out the word for someone to rescue them. Brynn Lavison, Mission Viejo Animal Services supervisor, answered that call (with the OK from the center’s management), and the dogs were transferred to the city. “It is truly a testament to the nature of dogs that these two were still so friendly and sweet after all they had endured,” she said. “Popeye, such a handsome boy, is all charm, leaning into you, giving his paw for a shake, and trying to climb on you like a big lap dog. Sweetpea, with her enduring under-bite, is quick to sit and will roll over for belly rubs. Everyone at the shelter who met these two was surprised by their gentle, sweet nature and capacity for forgiveness.” Sweetpea and Popeye’s story wouldn’t be complete without a happy ending that included a young couple who saw them on the Internet and instantly fell in love. That admiration was strengthened even more after they met the dogs. The adoption was finalized three days later. “These two amazing dogs were given a second chance at a wonderful life, and these young people were given their first ‘kids,’” Lavison said. For more information about the loving animals available for adoption, call 949-470-3045 or visit The center is at 28095 Hillcrest in Mission Viejo.

OCTA leaders along with local, state and federal officials on Wednesday welcomed the completion of safety upgrades along 52 rail crossings throughout Orange County at a ceremony in Anaheim. Board Chairman Paul Glaab and Board Directors Lorri Galloway and Carolyn Cavecche joined OCTA CEO Will Kempton to participate in the event along with Orange County Business Council President and CEO Lucy Dunn, California Acting Secretary of the Business, Transportation and Housing Agency Traci Stevens, Operation Lifesaver President Pete Aadland and Federal Railroad Administration’s Ron Ries. “I applaud Orange County for taking a proactive approach to enhancing rail safety,” Ries said. “OCTA’s combination of infrastructure improvements at the rail crossings and actively reaching out to the public and teaching them how to be safe along the tracks is a model approach for counties across the nation.” Dunn emphasized the importance of having an improved infrastructure to ensure long-term economic strength. “Ensuring a prosperous future for our residents and businesses

requires improving our transportation network,” Dunn said. “Areas throughout the state are investing in enhanced safety equipment at railroad crossings, but none compare to the collaborative and extensive rail safety program OCTA undertook.” The $85-million project involved making safety upgrades on 52 crossings in eight cities throughout the county. Upgrades to the crossings include additional gate crossing arms for motorists and pedestrians, new medians, coordinated traffic signals and additional signage and devices to better warn people of passing trains. Safety upgrades to the crossings also make the cities eligible to apply for quiet zone status. Trains in the quiet zones refrain from sounding their horns except in

situations where potential danger may be ahead. “The improvements allow for the continued expansion of Metrolink while ensuring our communities are safe and residents aren’t routinely disrupted by train horns,” Glaab said. “Even during these tough economic times, OCTA is working to provide viable transportation alternatives and implement pioneering programs to benefit our community.” With the anticipation of greater Metrolink train service in the future, the enhanced rail crossings allow trains to run more frequently while giving local residents and businesses along the corridor peace and quiet as well as better safety features to protect everyone living and working in those areas.

LOCAL DENTIST MICHAEL TESSIER EXPOSES THE HAZARDS OF TONGUE PIERCING A young female patient came into the office the other day. She was concerned that some recent fillings had become chipped. I put her in the chair and looked in her mouth, and the first thing I saw was a big dumbbell-shaped metal object in her tongue. This body-piercing craze that young people do, may seem really weird to parents and dentists alike as we can barely comprehend it. I sat back and, trying not to be condescending or patronizing, I explained to her that dental work is only designed to withstand normal chewing activities. Along with the above-mentioned potential damage to dental work, the medical implications are at least as significant. These include inflammation, which causes swelling and increased splitting of blood vessels, bleeding and localized infection. Because of the difficulty in cleaning around a tongue-piercing, bacteria (which are vibrant even in the healthiest mouth) can actually get into the bloodstream, and that can lead to serious infection Perhaps even worse are the possibilities of permanent nerve damage, leading to numbness and or loss of motor function. We’re talking about a tongue that’s numb and dis-coordinated, or swollen, requiring surgery, all of which make talking very difficult. The National Institutes of Health has identified piercing as a possible route for the transmission of hepatitis. Tongue piercing has become a popular part of young-adult culture. Proper sterilization techniques and the use of gold jewelry can reduce the risks of infection and metal-allergy reactions. Even so, tongue piercing can cause a variety of dental and medical problems and should be considered hazardous to one’s health. If you need more information about this subject, please call or visit our office (located at Antonio and Oso Parkways) located at 28562 Oso Parkway in Los Flores Plaza or call 949-459-7212.

ELKS HONOR MEMBERS FOR YEARS OF SERVICE Mission Viejo / Saddleback Valley Elks Lodge No. 2444 (“Elks Lodge”) conducted its annual tribute to members for years of service at a recent meeting. This year’s event, which was well attended by Elks members and guests, recognized years of tenure from five (5) to 60. Exalted Ruler (“ER”) Gloria R. LeCouvre presided over the meeting. Lodge Secretary Charlie Hart acted as master of ceremonies. Over 121 service pins were awarded. Secretary Hart said of the event, “Pins are awarded for five-year increments of service. We affectionately call it ‘Old Timers Night’ and it is always a fun filled get-together for the recipients and attendees. There is always lots of storytelling from the older members about the early history of our Lodge.” Members attending the meeting were awarded five through fifty-five year pins. 35-year service pins went to George Wegner of Mission Viejo, Jim Elder of San Juan Capistrano, Richard Schneller of Laguna Hills and Thomas Sargent of Redding. John Fischle of Dana Point, David Roadway of Oceanside, William Donohoe of Lake Forest and Gerald Logan of Pollock Pines received 40-year pins. 45-year pins were awarded to Hal

Friedlander and Stephen Janosik of Mission Viejo and long time bingo volunteer Frank DePrizio of Laguna Niguel. Celebrating 50 years of membership were Tom Meany and Hartcel Hobbs of Mission Viejo. Although not present at the meeting, Eugene Totera of San Clemente was recognized for his Elk membership spanning 60 years. However, long time member Morris Silver of Laguna Woods was present to accept ecognition and an anniversary pin for his 55 years of service Attending with Morris was proud wife Bea. ER LeCouvre said of the event, “Our Elks Lodge prides itself on the increasing numbers of younger men and women who are becoming members. We love to see those young families here enjoying themselves at a Friday night dinner as they are certainly the future of our Elks organization.” LeCouvre added, “Nevertheless, I think it is great when we honor our old timers. They are the people who built and made the Elks the charity organization it is today.” ER LeCouvre is herself an octogenarian, and prides herself on being one of the most active seniors in the entire national Elks organization.

Anaheim Ducks Raise $100k for Orangewood and CASA Around 650 fans, VIP’s, and supporters of Orangewood Children’s Foundation and CASA attended the 15th Annual Anaheim Ducks Casino Night themed this year “Center Ice White Out” - a night in white with hints of orange, created a magical evening on the center ice at the Honda Center. The event benefited Orangewood Children’s Foundation and CASA of Orange County raising $100,000.00 for programs to support both charities. Walking into the Honda Center, the center ice area was draped in white cloth that surrounded the entire ice rink. White walls, white flooring, tables, bars, the whole entire décor was white. All the Anaheim Ducks were in attendance, styled in their white tuxedos, along with the coaching staff and team management. Guests were asked to dress in their fashionable “White Haute Couture” attire as well. The event was hosted by 44 Women for Children chaired by Kimberly Kirksey. Her committee of 15 auxiliary members did an outstanding job; Kelly Bozza, Andrea Casaw, Carey Clawson, Ginny David, Ann Diem, Hope Dorsey, Lupe Erwin, Sherri Hudson, Stacey Kinney, Mari Kurtz, Joyce Piercey, Susan Samueli, Kristen Stephen, Linda Thauer, and Karen Whitfield made the evening a success. The event began with a VIP reception that included the specialty cocktail for the evening; a Blood Orange Cocktail (it kind of reminded me of a 50/50 bar) along with passed appetizers that included Boudin Blanc and Lobster Salad. There were fun things to do along with the casino game tables. A graffiti wall was available for channeling your inner Dali or one could pose for photos with various Duck players. Opportunity drawings this year were exciting; there were 15 items to win. Guests could get a variety of things ranging from a Private Blackjack table for 15 minutes for you and a guest with an Anaheim Ducks Player, a 201112 Anaheim Ducks Team Autographed Jersey, Zamboni Ride at a 2011-12 regular season home game, tickets to a Van Halen Concert or a luxury suite to an Anaheim Ducks regular season home game and many more. While enjoying the games of Blackjack, Roulette and Craps with their favorite Duck players, guests dined on three different stations of delectable delights. Station one served up Smoked Pork Loin, Anson Mills Polenta with house smoked bacon and caramelized onion and Brussel sprouts; Lamb belly with carrot puree, roasted carrot and black rice; Kabocha Ravioli with sage and brown butter; and Hearts of Palm Salad with toasted Cous Cous served in a lemon vinaigrette. Station two was an Asian delight with a beautiful ice sculpture housing sushi and oysters, guests dined on Hama Hama, Oysters on the half shell (shucked to order of course), with Yuzu Bubbles and hand rolled Sushi and Sashimi. Station three filled us with three delightful soups, White Asparagus, Fennel with Roasted Garlic and Roasted Butternut Squash with Truffle foam. Oh then the dessert station! Along with the white hot chocolate and mini Baked Alaska, there were Chocolate Mousse Parfait, White Cake Pops and White Mousse Cones, Vanilla Panna Cotta with salted caramel and Spanish peanuts, Truffles and mini cookies. Cantaloupe, Orange Watermelon, Cutie Tangerines and Oranges were also available. Ryan Getzlaf, Anaheim Ducks Team Captain welcomed everyone and introduced Orangewood CEO Cal Winslow, CASA CEO Gene Howard and the Title Sponsor, the Klein Family. Along with the Klein Family, The Samueli Foundation and San Manuel Indian Bingo and Casino sponsored the evening. After the silent auction area closed, fans were seen walking out with some pretty nifty items. From Anaheim Duck Jerseys, vacations, dinners and concerts, fans really had the time of their lives as they got up-close and Page 8

excitement builds for superbowl XLVI

Super Bowl XLVI will be an American football game between the American Football Conference (AFC) champion New England Patriots and the National Football Conference (NFC) champion New York Giants to decide the National Football League (NFL) champion for the 2011 season. It will be the 42nd annual championship game of the modern-era NFL and is scheduled to be played Sunday, February 5, 2012 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana. Kickoff time is scheduled for approximately 6:30 p.m. EST. This will be the first Super Bowl to be played in Indianapolis, and the first time in the history of the game it will be played in consecutive years in a retractable roof stadium. This will also be only the fourth time that the Super Bowl is played in a cold-weather city, after Detroit’s hosting of XVI and XL as well as Minneapolis’s hosting of XXVI. Downtown Indianapolis, the home of Lucas Oil Stadium, will feature an outdoor Super Bowl Village and other programs at Indiana Convention Center. Per convention as an even-numbered Super Bowl, the Patriots as the AFC representatives will have the home team designation. Super Bowl XLVI will be the sixth Super Bowl in which the two teams had competed in a previous Super Bowl match up, as the Giants and Patriots had previously met in Super Bowl XLII.[3] Both head coaches (Tom Coughlin and Bill Belichick) and both starting quarterbacks (Eli Manning and Tom Brady) return from Super Bowl XLII. With a 9–7 record during the regular season, the Giants returned to the playoffs for the first time since 2008, when they won the NFC East and finished the season as the NFC’s #4 seed. The Giants entered their week 17 match up with the Cowboys with both teams tied for the division lead with 8–7 records. The Giants took a Page 14

21–0 first half lead and while the Cowboys closed the gap to make the score 21–14 early in the 4th quarter, the Giants held on to defeat the Cowboys 31–14, clinching the divisional title and a playoff berth. Then they advanced to the playoffs by defeating the Atlanta Falcons in the Wild Card game 24-2, then they defeated the teams with the two best records in the NFL, knocking off the 15-1 Green Bay Packers 37-20 and the 13-3 San Francisco 49ers 20-17 on Lawrence Tynes’ game winning field goal in overtime. New York’s offense was led by pro bowl quarterback Eli Manning, in his seventh season as the team’s starter. Manning set new career highs in nearly every statistical category in 2011, throwing for a franchise record 4,933 yards and 29 touchdowns, with 16 interceptions, giving him a 92.9 passer rating. His top target was receiver Victor Cruz, who caught 82 passes for a franchise record 1,536 yards (3rd in the NFL) and 9 touchdowns. But he had plenty of other targets, including Hakeem Nicks (76 receptions, 1,192 yards, 7 touchdowns), Mario Manningham (39 receptions and 523 yards in 12 games) and tight end Jake Ballard (38 receptions, 604 yards, 15.9 average) Running back Ahmad Bradshaw was the team’s leading rusher with 659 yards and 9 touchdowns. He was also a reliable weapon in the passing game, hauling in 34 receptions for 267 yards and two touchdowns. Brandon Jacobs also made a big contribution on the ground, rushing for 571 yards and 7 touchdowns. New York’s defensive line was led by defensive ends Jason Pierre-Paul and Osi Umenyiora. Pierre-Paul racked up 86 combined tackles and ranked fourth in the NFL with 16.5 sacks, earning him the only pro bowl selection on the Giants defense, while Umenyiora recorded 9 sacks and 2 forced fumbles. New York also had an excellent secondary led by Corey Webster, who intercepted a career high 6 passes. Defensive backs Kenny Phillips and Aaron Ross added four interceptions each, while safety Antrel Rolle picked off two passes and led the team in combined tackles with 96. The Patriots finished with a 13-3 record, winning the AFC East and

The Ladera Ranch News

clinching the AFC’s #1 seed in the playoffs. New England lost two straight games in weeks 8 and 9 against the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Giants, respectively, before rallying to win their remaining regular season games. In the playoffs, New England defeated the Denver Broncos in the divisional round and the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Championship Game. Back at the helm of the offense was 12-year quarterback Tom Brady, who earned his 7th Pro Bowl selection. Starting every game of the season, Brady completed 65.6% of his passes for a career-high 5,246 yards (the second highest total in NFL history) and 39 touchdown passes, with just 12 interceptions and a rating of 105.6. Brady also added 109 yards and three scores on the ground. His main weapon in the passing game was Pro Bowl receiver Wes Welker, who led the NFL with 122 receptions (22 receptions ahead of second place) for 1,569 yards and 9 touchdowns. New England also had two of the best tight ends in the NFL: Pro Bowler Rob Gronkowski, who set new tight end records for receiving (1,327 yards) and touchdown catches (17); and Aaron Hernandez, who caught 79 passes for 910 yards and 7 touchdowns, while also rushing for 45 yards. Another big element of the passing game was veteran receiver Deion Branch, who caught 51 passes for 702 yards and 5 scores. Receivers Chad Ochocinco, Tiquan Underwood, Julian Edelman, and Matthew Slater made minor contributions to the passing attack; the latter two also served as emergency defensive backs. New England had several key contributors in the ground game. Their main rusher was BenJarvis GreenEllis, who rushed for 667 yards and 11 touchdowns. Running back Stevan Ridley added 447 yards and a 5.1 yards per carry average. Danny Woodhead contributed 351 yards with a 4.6 YPC average, and gained another 437 yards returning kickoffs. New England also had a solid offensive line, which was anchored by Pro Bowl guards Logan Mankins and Brian Waters. With all these weapons, New England ranked third in the NFL with 513 points. The Patriots’ defensive line featured two Pro Bowl selections: Vince Wilfork, who generated 3.5 sacks, two

interceptions, and one forced fumble; and Andre Carter, who contributed 10 sacks and forced two fumbles. Defensive End Mark Anderson was also a major force on the line, earning 10 sacks and two forced fumbles of his own. Behind them, Rob Ninkovich excelled at linebacker, gaining 74 tackles, 6.5 sacks, and two interceptions. In the secondary, cornerback Kyle Arrington had a breakout season. After recording just one interception in his first three years, Arrington picked off 7 passes in 2011, while also leading the team in tackles with 88. The Giants faced the #2 seed San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship Game. After a series of defensive standoffs in the fourth quarter, the game went into overtime. Both teams continued to struggle on offense, until New York linebacker Jacquian Williams stripped the ball from San Francisco wide receiver Kyle Williams after a punt return. The Giants recovered the ball at the 49ers 24 yard line, setting up a 31 yard field goal attempt by Giants kicker Lawrence Tynes. Unlike Cundiff earlier in the day, Tynes’ kick was successful, giving the Giants a 20-17 victory. The Giants joined the 2008 Arizona Cardinals and 1979 Los Angeles Rams as the only other team to advance to the Super Bowl with fewer than ten victories and have won six consecutive playoff games away from their home stadium, dating back to their victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 2007 Wild Card round. That includes their Super Bowl XLII victory over these same Patriots, although that game was played at a neutral site (and the Giants were the designated “away” team for the game). The Giants will again be the designated “away” team for Super Bowl XLVI.

segerstrom center for the arts celebrates 25th anniversary

Elizabeth and Henry Segerstrom with Willa Dean and General William Lyon

Henry and Elizabeth Segerstrom

Segerstrom Center for the Arts is unique as both an acclaimed arts institution and as a multi-disciplinary cultural campus. It is committed to supporting artistic excellence on all of its stages, offering unsurpassed experiences, and engaging the entire community in new and exciting ways through the unique power of live performance and a diverse array of inspiring programs. Segerstrom Center for the Arts, originally named the Orange County Performing Arts Center, can trace its roots back to the late 1960s, when a dedicated group of community leaders decided Orange County should have its own world-class performing arts venue. Their vision became reality in September 1986 with the opening of the Orange County Performing Arts Center. Using the same determination, dedication and generosity that allowed the Center to be built entirely through private funding, the Center achieved consistent artistic success, establishing itself as a valuable cultural resource for the entire community. Its international dance series earned the Center a reputation as one Page 18

of the leading presenters of dance in the country. The Center became a favorite stop for national tours of award-winning musicals from Broadway. Its annual music series brought the world’s greatest classical, jazz and cabaret artists to Orange County. And its innovative arts education programs were lauded by educators and school districts throughout California and beyond. Segerstrom Center for the Arts is Orange County’s largest non-profit arts organization. It owns and operates the 3,000-seat opera house style Segerstrom Hall, the 2,000-seat Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall, the 500-seat multi-functional Samueli Theater, 250-seat Founders Hall and 46,000-square-foot Arts Plaza. The Center’s Lawrence and Kristina Dodge Education Center includes the studio performance space and Boeing Education Lab as well as the offices for the Center’s education department. Other amenities include two private donor rooms, the elegant Leatherby’s Cafe Rouge and the informal Plaza Cafe. In the late 1960s, a number of

The Ladera Ranch News

Orange County community leaders decided it was time for their community to have a world-class performing arts venue. The region’s population had grown, businesses were headquartering here and major educational institutions were being established. Three of the county’s existing artistic organizations – the Philharmonic Society of Orange County, Pacific Symphony and Pacific Chorale - needed a concert hall with seating and acoustics appropriate to their needs and the caliber of their artists, a setting in which to grow and achieve greater prestige and recognition. Clearly, the time was right for the creation of a cultural institution worthy of this thriving community. In the mid 1970s, the local Segerstrom family donated a five-acre site for the original facility. It was also determined that the new performing arts complex would be built entirely through private funding. Government funding would be neither solicited nor accepted. Then named the Orange County Performing Arts Center, the organization held the distinction of being the first of its scope in the country to hold this distinction. Charles Lawrence served as lead architect. An international team of Dr. A. Harold Marshall, Dennis Paoletti and Jerald R. Hyde designed the acoustics. The vision of the Center’s founders became reality on September 29, 1986, when Segerstrom Hall Opened its doors to the public for the first time. It was one of the nation’s most innovative and technically advanced homes for the performing arts. Soprano Leontyne Price inaugurated the venue by singing the “Star Spangled Banner” with Zubin Mehta conducting the Los Angeles Philharmonic. In 1998, the Segerstrom family

made another commitment to the Center. An additional parcel of land was deeded to the Center for the purpose of constructing a concert hall, a multi-use theater, an education center, public restaurant and outdoor community plaza. The creative team of architect Cesar Pelli, acousticians Russell Johnson and Damian Doria of Artec Consultants, Inc. and landscape architect Peter Walker and Partners was engaged for this new project. Another major step towards the completion of the original dream of the Center’s founders came when, in August 2000, Henry Segerstrom provided the lead gift of $40 million to the Center’s $200 million capital campaign. This was the largest charitable cash gift in the history of Orange County. In recognition of this cornerstone gift, the new concert hall was named the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall after the Center’s founding chairman and his late wife. The 500-seat theater was designated Samueli Theater in recognition of the $10 million gift from the Henry Samueli family. Groundbreaking for the expanded Center took place on February 6, 2003 with a spectacular concert by the Pacific Symphony in Segerstrom Hall followed by three backhoes synchronized to make the first official digs on the construction site and a breathtaking fireworks display. 2006 was a watermark year for the Center and the community. In April, the Center announced Terrence W. Dwyer as its new president. Dwyer had previously served as managing director of two of the nation’s preeminent theaters - the La Jolla Playhouse and Houston’s Alley Theatre. That same month, Connector, a towering

steel sculpture created by renowned artist Richard Serra, was installed on the new community plaza that unites the Center’s original structure with the newer venues. It was commissioned by Elizabeth and Henry Segerstrom. On September 14th, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and a host of other state and local government dignitaries participated in a community dedication ceremony in the concert hall. The highlight of the year occurred on September 15, 2006, when the Center inaugurated its new Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall with a spectacular concert by Pacific Symphony led by its music director, Carl St. Clair. Featuring Plácido Domingo singing the world premiere of Canciones de Lorca by composer William Bolcom, the evening also included performances by Pacific Chorale. On September 16, St.Clair, Pacific Symphony and Pacific Chorale performed the world premiere of Philip Glass’ The Passion of Ramakrishna. Violin virtuoso Midori performed the Beethoven Violin Concerto. The first six weeks celebrating the opening of the new concert hall featured gala celebrations, recitals and concerts offered by the Center and its resident companies, a community day enjoyed by 10,000 people and an unprecedented residency by Russia’s Kirov Orchestra, Opera and Ballet of St. Petersburg. The Kirov companies were led by their artistic director Valery Gergiev. Performances included the North American premiere of the Opera’s production of Wagner’s Ring, Mussorgsky’s Boris Godunov, the ballets Romeo and Juliet and Swan Lake, and concerts that included an evening of epic proportions featuring the combined powers of the Kirov Orchestra and Pacific Symphony. Maestros Gergiev and St. Clair shared the podium. Samueli Theater, opened with a series of events, including the opening concert by Grammy® Award-winner Sheryl Crow, a performance by Camp Freddy and a recital by young opera singers of the Kirov Theatre Conservatory. During this same period, the Center also celebrated its 20th anniversary. A festive evening was marked by a sold-out concert in Segerstrom Hall by legendary vocalist Tony Bennett On January 12, 2011, the Center changed its name to Segerstrom Center for the Arts. The new name honors the extraordinary contributions of the Segerstrom family, whose unwavering commitment has been at the core of the Center’s success. In addition to the presenting institution Segerstrom Center for the Arts, the entire 14-acre multidisciplinary

The Only Weekly Newspaper Exclusively for the Ladera Ranch Area

campus on which its venues stand is also designated with the same name. Segerstrom Center encompasses the producing-presenting institution itself and two other major arts organizations. These include the Tony® Award-winning South Coast Repertory. A gift of land from the Segerstrom Family enabled SCR to open its theater in Costa Mesa in 1978 and set the stage for the subsequent creation of the arts complex. In 2002, SCR opened an expanded facility on the campus, the Folino Theatre Center, encompassing the 507-seat Segerstrom Stage, the 336-seat Julianne Argyros Stage and the Nicholas Studio. Segerstrom Center is also the future site of the new Orange County Museum of Art. In addition to offering a broad spectrum of quality regional, national and international programming, the Center has one of the nation’s most respected departments of education and community programs and has affected the lives of more than 16 million young people and educators. Each year, approximately 375,000 elementary, middle and high school, college students and educators have their lives enriched by attending a Center arts-in-education program such as the Center’s Arts Teach, ArtsConnect, Summer at the Center, Masters at the Center and others. Founders Plus, one of the Center’s many support groups, helps to distribute thousands of free tickets to students and the underserved each year. Support groups and service organizations help to raise funds and community awareness for the Center. Participation and membership provide members with opportunities

to enjoy many events and to share and enhance their love for the arts. The Guilds of the Center, Angels of the Arts, Center Stars, Founders Plus and Center Docents provide important financial and ambassadorial support for the Center through their activities, dues structures and fundraisers.
