Saturday: 'Dallas' theme for Las Lomitas auction


It's a visit to Southfork for the Las Lomitas Education Foundation's annual spring auction. "Dallas," referring to the 1980s-era television show, is the theme for the benefit, to be held from 5 to 10 p.m. Saturday, May 15, at Portola Farms in Portola Valley.

The evening will feature live music, dinner, and both silent and live auctions. "Hot ticket" items will be passes to the season finale of the "American Idol" television program, tickets to the 2011 Super Bowl in Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, and dinner in your home, prepared by Chef Dmitry Elperin of The Village Pub.

An online auction will run from May 13 to 23, featuring restaurant gift certificates, home decor items and services, fitness services, tickets to museums and performances, and more.

The auction has five co-chairs this year: Jeanette Kennedy, Komal Shah, Lisa Shepard Reid, Noelle Queen, and MJ Crousore. The committee hopes to equal the $200,000 the benefit auction raised last year, says Ms. Kennedy.

Each year the auction addresses a specific need for the school district. This year is "back-to-basics," with funds going to textbooks and instructional materials.

Tickets to "Dallas" are $100 per person.

Got to to buy tickets or access the online auction.
