Spend an elegant evening with the Maple Youth Ballet as we honor Donalyn Kling of the Kling Family Foundation at the harborside location of Black, Starr & Frost, America's first jeweler since 1810. The evening will benefit classical youth ballet and the Charles A. Maple, Sr. Scholarship.
The evening will feature fine art, silent auction, raffle scrumptious appetizers, beverages and wine, and of course, a special appearance by our Maple Youth Ballet dancers! Black Starr & Frost will donate 10% of all purchases that evening to the Maple Youth Ballet!
Donalyn Kling's devotion was first inspired by her mother, Lillian Sherwood Griswold, a kindergarten teacher and artist. Mrs. Kling later studied interior design student at Chouinard's Art School, and then worked as a draftswoman at the Lockheed-Vega Aircraft Plant during the Second World War. Her passion for art continues today, having studied with many well-known Laguna Beach artists, and by generously supporting youth arts education through the Kling Family Foundation.
The Maple Youth Ballet is delighted to say thank you to Mrs. Kling and her family. Through her support, we have produced sold-out performances of The Nutcracker, Copelia and Sleeping Beauty. These productions not only give our young dancers the exciting and team-building experience of live performance, but also inspire thousands of young children whose first exposure to ballet is at a Maple Youth Ballet performance.
Black, Starr & Frost has a rich history, from its inception in 1810 through two centuries of passion and unforgettable service. We delight your senses in a truly grand and authentic Old World ambience. We bring the world to Southern California with one-of-a-kind, exceptional jewelry that delivers value beyond price. Our master jewelers will turn your dreams into an heirloom to be treasured for many generations to come. Black, Starr & Frost – where Old World charm and quality of service is legendary!.
All proceeds will benefit the Maple Youth Ballet, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization by helping to fund future Maple Ballet productions for the community, our Community Outreach Program and our student scholarship fund. Learn more about the Maple Youth Ballet
