Even More Photos from Friday Night’s 2nd Annual Red Dot Auction

Here's a whole batch of photographs from last Friday evening's 2nd Annual Red Dot Auction that benefited the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity. The outpouring of love and support was tremendous and we send all of you who successfully bid on a work of art (or in some cases, multiple works of art), and to those who heartily bid on the live auction items, a heartfelt and grateful thank you — along with a big round of applause!

People pictured below have been identified to the best of our ability, if there has been error or you or someone you know was not identified, please drop us a note and we'll make the correction. Enjoy!
