PEAHOF Officers Selected

Ralph Ramirez was elected President of the Pittsburg Entertainment & Arts Hall of Fame at the September meeting of the all-volunteer nonprofit’s Sept. 27 Board of Directors meeting.

Ramirez, who plays sax and flute, has performed in numerous Pittsburg bands since the 1940s and, along with his wife, Gloria, is a longtime supporter of the arts in Pittsburg and Contra Costa County.

Ramirez has been the top fundraiser for PEAHOF, including soliciting all the advertisers for the inaugural PEAHOF Induction Ceremony program last year. He had been serving as the interim president during the board election campaign earlier this year.

Tom Lewis, the original founder of the Pittsburg Creative Arts Building Corporation which raised over $500,000 to restore all the seats in the renovated Creative Arts Building, was selected Vice President.

Sandi Lee was re-elected to the combined Secretary-Treasurer role. Lee also created the PEAHOF website at pittsburgentertainmentandarts.org and serves as editor of the PEAHOF newsletter.

The board is looking for a replacement for Betty Brown, who has had to step down from her position. Anyone interested in serving on the board can apply for the position by emailing the board at pittartshall@gmail.com.


LMC's Silvester Henderson honored by County

 

Los Medanos College music professor Silvester Henderson was presented with the Contra Costa County Arts Commission's 2014 Arts Recognition Award at the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors Meeting on Oct. 21.

 

The award acknowledged Henderson's evolving legacy in support of music, especially gospel music, and promoting education through the arts. Highlights include his impact in the greater LMC community through LMC's gospel choir and annual music festival held at the College. He also created music goals and guidelines for both mentors and students for the Pittsburg Entertainment & Arts Hall of Fame's Art Mentorship Program at Pittsburg junior high schools.

 

The Arts and Culture Commission of Contra Costa County (AC5) has been recognizing arts leaders in our communities through the Arts Recognition Awards for 16 years. The award honors individuals, businesses, or charitable organizations that have made significant artistic or philanthropic contributions to Contra Costa's arts and culture over a sustained period of time.

 

Anyone is eligible to nominate, and any individual or organization within Contra Costa County may be nominated through the Commission's website, www.ac5.org. The Commission creates a panel of judges from their County District Arts Commissioners to select honorees.
