If You Live in South Cal Don't Miss the Great Herb Ryman Arts Charity Gala this coming Sunday, February 23rd !

Our good friends at MiceChat are organizing a big Herb Ryman Arts Charity Gala this coming Sunday (February 23rd). Herb Ryman was a genius painter, Disney animator and WDI Imagineer - above, one of his famous inspirational artwork for Tokyo Disneyland - It's going to be a fantastic event and, on top of everything, Diane Disney Miller's daughters are flying down from San Francisco and will be there with family! I'm sure that some of you living in South Cal might be interested to attend the event which will offer a cocktail reception with delicious hors d'oeuvres and a silent auction, followed by gourmet dinner, Disney on Broadway cabaret-style production (with Michael-Leon Wooley - Louis the Alligator from Princess and the Frog), a tribute to Diane Disney Miller (in which we will award her the very first MiceChat Ryman Legend Award), and it'll finish up with an auction of some very unique items.  

At the moment, they are expecting the following auction items among others:
- Mike Peraza (Art Director for Disney's The Little Mermaid) has painted a one of a kind full color pastel of Ariel (see attached).  
- Bob Gurr will auction himself off for a private tour of Disneyland
- Margaret "Tinker Bell" Kerry will auction herself off to give a tour of the Walt Disney Studios
- We'll have signed attraction posters and movie posters
- We will have signed bottles of wine from Silverado Winery (Ron and Diane Disney Miller's winery)
- There will be some hand drawn sketches by artists such as Disney Legend Floyd Norman
- We have two hand signed Herb Ryman prints!
- Plus lots more
