Rancho Santa Fe Student Art Auction to be held at ‘Toast of the Town’ event


Students are putting their final touches on their masterful artwork creations for the 3rd Annual RSF Student Art Auction, part of the upcoming “Toast of the Town” celebration.

Please join friends and fellow parents for an adult-only casual evening honoring your support of the RSF Education Foundation. The “Toast of the Town” celebration will be held at The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe on Thursday, June 7, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

The evening includes the 3rd Annual Student Art Auction featuring artistic masterpieces created by teams of students and guided by parent volunteers. Each classroom produces its own unique creation with each student in the class assisting. Projects this year promise to deliver: a gorgeous hand-tiled mosaic birdbath featuring a sand dollar surrounded by blue waves created by Mrs. Block’s 6th grade class is destined to create a bidding war! Don’t miss the matching hand-painted gold urns filled with succulents and bromeliads or the beautifully hand-painted matching ceramic platters painted by students. All the fabulous art will be on preview at the Ocean Weeks Open House on May 30.

Please bring your credit card and your SUV, you’re sure to fill it up with the auction items you’ve won! Plan on transporting your items home that evening — items cannot be stored overnight at The Inn. The artwork will be carefully displayed and sold at auction to benefit the RSF Education Foundation. The Student Art Auction will close at 6:50 p.m.

Guests will enjoy beer, wine and hors d’oeuvres. The evening is generously sponsored by Community Partner and host, The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe. This event is complimentary for all 2011/12 contributors and celebrates the “Five-Star Education” programs. There is still time to contribute and join the fun! Any who have not contributed can still donate to the Foundation by calling 756-1141 x 208 or online at All proceeds from the auction will benefit the RSF Education Foundation.
