The fundraiser included a raffle, live auction, dinner and dancing to the music of The Sardo Brothers Band, led by Tony Sardo.
Welcoming guests was Karin Detweiler, president of the Women's Committee, who served as the mistress of ceremonies.
Some of the auction items were a large basket from Merle Norman Cosmetics of Montrose, an antique Tapa cloth wall hanging, donated by Jeraldine Saunders, a Hawaiian-themed basket from the Symphony Stampede Committee with more than 20 items in it, a painting donated by Valerie Howard and various pieces of donated jewelry. The grand raffle prize was $500.
Detweiler was pleased with the event's success.
"It is reassuring to know that so many continue to understand the importance of music education and appreciation," she said. "I thank all who support both the Women's Committee and the Glendale Symphony — the two groups proudly remain as integral elements to our community."
