The Crucible's Fire & Light Soirée

April 19, 2016

Bently Foundation founders Christopher and Camille Bently have been presented with The Crucible's Clarion Award.

The Crucible recently hosted its annual fundraising event Fire & Light Soirée and Art Auction supporting The Crucible's Education Programs. This year, Christopher and Camille Bently were presented with The Crucible's Clarion Award, a bronze bell cast in The Crucible's foundry. Guests enjoyed a cocktail hour followed by a delicious three-course dinner, live entertainment including music, dance, magic, and fire performance by The Traveling Spectacular, as well as fire and art installations and seventeen unique sculptures on display and available for purchase. 

The event was a complete success, with special guest Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf presenting The Crucible with a mayoral proclamation for its many contributions to the collaboration of arts, industry, and community.
