RANCHO SANTA FE — Willis Allen Realtor Sherry Shriver recently combined two of her passions — real estate and art — for a good cause. Shriver teamed up with the Rancho Santa Fe Art Guild to host an art showcase benefiting the Art Guild’s charity, the San Pasqual Academy. The benefit was held at El Mirar estate in the Rancho Santa Fe Covenant. It included a juried art show, raffle and door prizes, and Academy gift bags.
“This open house-style event was a wonderful way to showcase the Art Guild’s fine art, the El Mirar estate and, most importantly, to raise awareness and money for the San Pasqual Academy, which does such tremendous work for San Diego youth,” Shriver said. “El Mirar estate is simply perfect for this type of entertaining with its panoramic ocean and mountain views, lavish indoor/outdoor space and meticulously manicured landscaping. Thank you to everyone who participated in this joint venture.”
“Members of The Rancho Santa Fe Art Guild were especially pleased to demonstrate how our artists’ work can showcase such a beautiful property, as well as help to fund such a worthwhile cause,” Rancho Santa Fe Art Guild President Tim Lueker said.
The San Pasqual Academy is a residential education campus for San Diego County foster children. Here, children focus on school, obtain job and independent living skills, tap into their creative talents, make friends and develop a support base to help them when they leave the foster care system.
“Sherry’s creativity and dedication to her clients and her community are boundless, and this collaborative event is just one more example of her inventiveness,” Rancho Santa Fe Branch Manager Gary Wheeler said. “This community event benefited everyone involved, and illustrates the outside-the-box, ‘everyone wins’ thinking that Sherry’s clients know they can count on from her.”
