Orange County High School of the Arts, 25th Anniversary Gala

That time of year has come again! OCHSA's annual Gala event. Except this year it was something truly special, OCHSA's 25th Anniversary! The school celebrated 25 years in style. Of course our theme was "SILVER!" If it sparkled, you can assume it was part of our event! This year we went digital for our Silent Auction. We used BidPal, a company that gives each guest (or couple) an Ipod Touch that has an app installed that has been linked with all of the auction items. This allows guests to bid on items from virtually anywhere. While there were some issues with the devices and set up of the program, overall it was very successful!

This event was held March 10, 2012 a the Hyatt Regency- Irvine

Here is an overview of the incredibly talented students at OCHSA

First things First, this event could not have been possible without our amazing sponsors! Audi of America and Omega

Friday we began to set up our Registration area and Silent Auction tent. -The registration area also holds all of the artwork that was being auctioned off in our Silent Auction.

The final product of the Auction tent!

These lamps were placed around the room to add additional lighting to the room (and of course they were "bling-ed" out!)
