37th Annual ABE Consortium Luncheon

The 37th annual Arts Business Education Consortium Luncheon was held at the Antlers Hilton in Colorado Springs on Wednesday, April 20, 2016. "This luncheon was a celebration of locals who were awarded for contributing to the arts in education, as well as elementary and middle school children who were awarded scholarships to study the arts."

The ENTIRE art department at Discovery Canyon Campus created 10 X 10 works of art for the Silent Auction that was held as part of this event. These amazing works of art were displayed in the grand ballroom at the Antlers Hotel and sold with bids starting at $25.00 and increasing in $5.00 increments. All monies made will help with the Mary Lou Anderson art scholarships.
