The Frostig Center, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of children with learning differences, will hold its benefit dinner on Saturday, Feb. 9 at the Altadena Town & Country Club.

Guests will enjoy an evening of dining and entertainment and have opportunities to bid on a tempting array of vacations, artwork, jewelry and special events. NBC4 Southern California Weathercaster Fritz Coleman will be the master of ceremonies.

Proceeds from the event will support Frostig School, which enrolls 130 students in grades 1-12 who have learning challenges.

The silent and live auctions will have something for everyone. Art lovers, for instance, may bid on work by Frank Gehry, Kenton Nelson and David Trulli, while music fans will have the chance to take home a copy of The Beatles’ White Album signed by Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr and a guitar autographed by members of the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

“The Frostig benefit dinner is always a fun and uplifting evening,” Executive Director Dean Conklin said. “It gives the community a moment to celebrate and support students who work hard every day to overcome their learning challenges.”

Frostig School enrolls boys and girls in grades 1-12 who have learning differences such as dyslexia, auditory processing disorders, ADHD, and high functioning autism. Frostig School draws students from throughout the greater Los Angeles area with its strong academic curriculum, robust arts program, and on-site clinical services.

The benefit begins at 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9 at the Altadena Town & Country Club, 2290 Country Club Drive in Altadena. Tickets are $150 per person and can be purchased by calling The Frostig Center at (626) 791-1255.
