The Education Fund's Annual Charity Auction

The Education Fund’s Annual Charity Auction


The Education Fund and Ocean Bank
Host Annual 

“The Art of Found Objects” Auction

Proceeds Benefit Miami-Dade County Public School Art Programs at a Critical Time


May 14, 2010 



The Education Fund’s Annual Charity Auction “The Art of Found Objects” hosted by Ocean Bank May 14 at 7p.m. at The Atrium in the Design District (4141 NE 2nd Avenue). Tickets range from $75 to $2,500. Purchase tickets online at or call
(305) 892-5099, ext. 23.
For 25 years, The Education Fund has supported Miami-Dade public schools by directing resources from the private sector into the school system. With recent budget cuts to the district estimated at $1.13 billion, school art programs are increasingly under-funded and in danger of being cut. To fundraise in support of local art teachers and their students, the organization, along with Ocean Bank, hosts an annual charity auction called “The Art of Found Objects.”
This auction is the most extraordinary arts and education event of the season, showcasing more than 200 one-of-a-kind pieces of quality artwork created by students and teachers from 50 Miami-Dade County’s K-12 public schools. This art lover’s event features bids on the works and additional luxury items. Live entertainment will be provided by students from New World School of the Arts. Student chefs from Robert Morgan High School, an award-winning culinary arts magnet school, will partner with celebrity chefs Cindy Hutson of Ortanique, Clay Conley of Azul and Ken Lyons of Fratelli Lyon to provide an epicurean feast for the guests. Open bar is sponsored by Bacardi.
“This auction will showcase the tremendous imagination of our public school teachers and their students. It is an example of what can be done creatively with recycled, “found objects,” said Linda Lecht, President of The Education Fund. It is so important that we support arts education in our public schools.  Many of our community’s top collectors recognize this fact and participate in this wonderful event,” she added.
The auction is a popular event attended by more than 400 of South Florida’s business, art and community leaders. Many local art collectors attend the event each year including: philanthropist R. Kirk Landon; Myrna and Sheldon Palley, whose world-class glass art collection is on display at the Lowe Art Museum; Carol Damian of the Frost Art Museum; art collector and board member of South Florida Arts Center Merle Weiss and philanthropists and art collectors Sanford and Dolores Ziff.
Major sponsors include: DACRA, Whole Foods, Bacardi, Ocean Bank, The Children’s Trust, The R. Kirk Landon Foundation and Social Affairs Magazine.
Since 1985, The Education Fund has worked side-by-side with the private sector to direct resources where they are needed most in Miami-Dade schools. Their mission is to design and implement initiatives to improve our schools and bring excellence to public education in Miami-Dade. The Education Fund engages the entire community in making educational excellence a top priority and ensuring that every child learns and succeeds in the Miami-Dade County public schools. The Education Funds programs benefit all of the 390+ schools, 22,000+ teachers and 340,000+ students in Miami-Dade County Public Schools.
