What: ForumFest 2011, a celebration of this year's accomplishments in architecture and a fundraiser for the Forum's future projects.

When: Saturday, April 2nd, 2011, 7:30-10:30pm
Where: 2632 West 15th Street, LA, CA 90006
Why: Taking place at the Griffin Enright-designed St. Thomas the Apostle School, this year's ForumFest brings music, food, and a love of architecture together. Dance to the tunes of KCRW's Tom Schnabel while you munch on food catered by Bling Bling Dumpling and Fruit and Flour. When you've had your fill, check out architect-lead tours of the building. Forum will also be making a special announcement regarding, "a new annual event to honor the memory of our friend, former board member John Chase." The profits and donations from ForumFest provide the funding needed to continue forward on this year's projects.
Cost: Tickets start at $100.00 and can be purchased through the Forum's website.
